What is argon laser therapy?
An argon laser is a device that uses argon gas to emit a stream of light characterized by a wavelength that is absorbed only by specific pigments, like melanin and hemoglobin, and passes harmlessly through a lot of substances, such as fluids. Argon laser therapy applies this technology to help heal many gastrointestinal problems including hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. If you are in need of argon laser therapy in Denver, CO, we can help. To learn more about this therapy, connect with our gastrointestinal physicians at Denver Digestive Health Specialists to book an appointment.
What are some benefits of argon laser therapy?
Laser therapies, as a rule, provide greater precision in comparison to alternative procedures, which means the approach is more focused on diseased or damaged tissue. Incisions can, therefore, be made smaller and more superficially and create less ensuing trauma to the tissue. People often tend to recover more quickly from laser operations than what is expected from traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As found with any medical operation, risks are present. However, due to the extreme precision of laser therapy, it is generally thought to be less of a risk compared to alternate surgical procedures. Some of the potential risks can include pain, reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection. Your well-being is extremely important to the GI specialists at Denver Digestive Health Specialists. Consult with our office to discover more about the ways we keep you safe while making sure you receive effective treatment.
