As a clinician who utilizes a laser – would you like to incorporate more laser surgeries into your practice? The Atlas of CO2 Laser Surgery Procedures includes step-by-step slideshows and videos, helping laser surgeons better utilize their lasers, perform more laser surgeries, and in effect increase their revenues from laser surgery. The atlas also includes information about laser safety, CO2 laser-tissue interaction and most efficient surgery techniques.

The procedures in the Atlas reflect the diversity of applications in which a CO2 laser can be used in a small animal veterinary practice. All surgeries were performed utilizing CO2 lasers with the flexible hollow waveguide delivery system. The Atlas is compatible with Windows 7/8/10 and can be installed from the USB drive.
