Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to produce a channel of light with a wavelength absorbed only by specific pigments including melanin and hemoglobin and passes harmlessly through other substances such as fluids. Argon laser therapy uses this technology to address multiple gastrointestinal situations including dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures. If you are seeking argon laser therapy in Louisiana, our team can help. For additional information about this therapy, contact our gastrointestinal physicians at GastroGroup & Endocenter to request an appointment.

Laser therapies often provide greater precision than alternative methods because the approach is more focused on the problematic or diseased tissue. Incisions are made more superficially and shallow, causing significantly less trauma to the tissue. Patients often tend to experience a faster recovery following laser surgeries than what is expected from traditional surgery.

Is argon laser therapy safe?

As with any surgery, there are risks. Still, due to the extreme precision of laser therapy, it is typically considered a lower risk relative to other surgical procedures. However, some of the associated risks can include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your safety is extremely important to the gastroenterologists at GastroGroup & Endocenter. Speak with our office to hear more about the ways we keep you safe while providing you with reliable treatment.

Our Louisiana medical team will give you specific preparation instructions that you should adhere to prior to argon laser therapy. You could be advised to pause taking specific medications that could put you at risk during the surgery. Plan for a recovery period and transportation after the procedure, as you will most likely remain somewhat sedated. Please be sure to pose any questions you might have about the argon laser treatment protocol during your consultation.
