Urological Surgery


 
      The Holmium:YAG (Ho:YAG) laser is perhaps the most versatile surgical laser currently in the armamentarium of today's laser surgeon. The Ho:YAG's unique ability to vaporize, ablate and coagulate both soft tissues and extremely hard, dense tissues have made it the laser of choice for orthopaedic, urologic, ENT, gynecologic, general, and maxillofacial surgeons; neurosurgeons, gastroenterologists, and podiatrists worldwide.

     Control of thermal penetration, hemostasis in virtually any tissue, delivery systems that allow access to even the tightest spaces and a wide variety of tissue effects are just a few of the many benefits the Ho:YAG laser can bring to your patients and practice.

     The Ho:YAG laser has become the standard of care among practicing urologists for the treatment of renal calculi approached in a retrograde fashion, ureteral stones, bladder stones, superficial bladder carcinoma, strictures and BPH requiring surgical intervention.

 

Urological Surgery - Soft Tissue Applications

The hemostasis and shallow depth of penetration afforded by the 2100 nanometer light of the Holmium:YAG laser make it the ideal tool for resecting the extremely vascular tissues encountered by the practicing urologist.
