Laser Surgery – A Surgery in which a LASER beam is used to cut tissue (instead of a conventional scalpel), remove diseased tissues or treat bleeding blood vessels.
Laser is a fine and concentrated beam of light that can cut or sculpt tissues similar to a knife but with lesser pain and blood loss.

- Surgery is bloodless.
- As the charring is minimal, pain is very minimal or nonexistent.
- As the laser beam is precise, sharp cutting without any spread is possible.
- The Ho-Yag when used in Laparoscopy is sharp and bloodless.
- Patient recovery is very quick.
- Even major procedures are done as day care.
