      An understanding of lasers and how they interact with living tissue is essential to obtaining the best possible clinical outcomes for your patients. Join us for a fascinating look at how laser light is being used to enhance surgical procedures in everyday practice. 1 CE Credit.
    • Session 2 (3:00-3:50pm): William E. Schultz, DVM – Laser Surgery in Highly Vascular Tissues for Everyday Practitioners
      Laser surgery had dramatically changed the visual surgical field by controlling hemorrhage without the tissue damage associated with electrosurgery and the enhanced visual field afforded the surgeon. Delicate dissection with visualization is a hallmark of laser surgery as examined through a number of clinical case reviews. 1 CE Credit.

      Some of the skin diseases frequently treated include bowenoid in-situ carcinoma, apocrine cysts, nodular sebaceous gland tumors, follicular tumors, various nevi and skin tags, squamous cell carcinoma, precancerous actinic lesions on the nose and pinnae, and small tumors on the pinnae, muzzle, eyelids and paws. Many of these are treatable only with the CO2 laser; others are more easily treated with the CO2 laser. 1 CE Credit.
