What is argon laser therapy?
Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to produce channels of light with a wavelength absorbed only by specific pigments, including hemoglobin and melanin, and that move without damage through other substances like fluids. Argon laser therapy employs this technology to treat a number of GI symptoms, including hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. If you are looking into argon laser therapy in Texas, we can help. For more information regarding this therapy, connect with our providers at Texas Digestive Disease Consultants to request a consultation at a location near you.
What are the advantages of argon laser therapy?
Laser therapies typically provide greater precision compared to alternative methods, which means the approach better targets damaged or problematic tissue. This means incisions can be made shallower and shorter, resulting in significantly less ensuing trauma to the tissue. People usually tend to benefit from more expedited recovery following laser treatments than what is expected from more traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As is the case with any medical operation, risks are still present. Still, due to the focused nature of laser therapy, it is generally considered a lower risk compared to alternate surgical procedures. A partial list of the associated risks includes reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your well-being is of the utmost importance to the gastrointestinal doctors at Texas Digestive Disease Consultants. Consult with our team to learn more about the ways we protect your safety while providing you with reliable treatment.
What should I do to prepare for argon laser treatment?
Our Texas medical team will provide you with individualized preparation directions that you should adhere to in advance of your argon laser therapy. You may be advised to pause the use of specific medications that could put you at risk during surgery. Plan for some recovery time and travel after the procedure, considering you will most likely still be somewhat sedated. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you might have regarding the argon laser therapy protocol when you consult with your provider.
