What is argon laser therapy?
Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to produce a beam of light with a wavelength absorbed only by specific pigments, including hemoglobin and melanin, which pass without damage through many substances, such as fluids. Argon laser therapy uses this technology to address many GI symptoms, such as hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. If you are seeking argon laser therapy in Washington, we can help. To learn more about argon laser therapy, reach out to the providers at Washington Gastroenterology to request an appointment with a GI specialist near you.
What are the benefits of argon laser therapy?
In general, laser therapies provide greater precision than alternative procedures, meaning the treatment can focus more on the problematic or diseased tissue. Incisions can, therefore, be made smaller and more superficially resulting in less trauma to the tissue. Patients often recover more quickly following laser surgeries than from traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As in any surgery, there are risks involved. However, due to the precise focus of laser therapy, it is generally considered a lower risk compared to alternate surgical approaches. Some of the potential risks can include a reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your well-being is the primary concern of the GI providers at Washington Gastroenterology. Please speak with our office to hear more about how our procedures protect your safety while providing reliable treatment.
How can I prepare for argon laser treatment?
Our Washington clinical team will provide clear preparation instructions to follow prior to your argon laser treatment. You may be directed to pause taking specific medications that could put you at risk during the treatment. You should also plan for a recovery period and transportation following your treatment, as you will likely still be somewhat sedated. Please do not hesitate to pose any questions that you may have about the argon laser treatment protocol during your consultation.
