Redefining Surgical Standards: Contemporary CO2 Laser Techniques

The 2023 Veterinary Laser Surgery Symposium of the American Laser Study Club (ALSC) will take place at the Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX, on May 19-20. The symposium includes lectures that will redefine your approach to surgery, dramatically improving your surgical results, and a hands-on lab to implement new surgical strategies. This is the only annual gathering for veterinarians focusing on laser surgery. This is a great place to meet colleagues, network, and learn from renowned veterinary surgeons and dermatologists. Attendees will learn about surgical laser applications, techniques, technologies, laser science, and safety education.

Hands-On Laser Surgery Lab

Attendees will participate in a hands-on wet lab with tissue samples at no additional cost. This is an excellent opportunity for clinicians to try out a surgical laser firsthand and practice some of the most advanced and up-to-date surgical techniques, such as fast full-thickness skin incisions, fast large-area superficial ablations, and many more. The wet lab is intended for both new and advanced laser surgeons.

Testimonials from Past Symposia

The program was very well organized with incredible speakers. This is one of the best seminars I’ve attended.

William F. Yohler, DVM

I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I’ve learned a lot about the physics of how a laser actually works… Some very good interactions with some very experienced faculty. It was very valuable for me.

There was a good range of presenters. I liked the fact that they were from different places around the world… A real practical variety to draw on people’s experiences. I thought it was excellent.

Karin Davids, BVSc, MANZCVS

I look forward to implementing what I learned here. Please continue your excellent efforts to spread the word about the ALSC and its RACE approval. I look forward to seeing even more vets next year. It was a great pleasure joining you all again, seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Congratulations!

Christopher Winker DVM, VMLSO
