Electrosurgery for Pets
Less blood loss, faster procedures, faster recoveries, a mark of quality.

The veterinarians of Healing Springs Animal Hospital now use electrosurgery tools whenever they will improve the surgery process. When a pet starts bleeding during surgery, the traditional approach for vets is to find and suture the bleeding vessels as quickly as possible. Healing Springs uses equipment that replaces the old-fashioned sutures in these situations. We use a tool that emits radio frequency electrosurgical energy to seal vascular structures. While the tool itself does not get hot, the high-current energy causes the tissues in the target area to excite and fuse, instantly forming a natural, permanent seal. Our electrosurgery tool can seal vessels in two to four seconds, and the seals holds better than sutured vessels. More than 300 scientific studies on bipolar electrosurgery show that this approach:
• Reduces blood loss
• Reduces procedure time 
• Reduces the potential for suture reaction
• Improves recovery time 

This is now a normal part of surgical procedures at Healing Springs and costs nothing extra. Electrosurgery is a mark of quality in veterinary care and is one of the many surgery and general care enhancements going on every day at Healing Springs Animal Hospital in Galax, VA.
