Argon Laser Therapy

An argon laser is a device that uses argon gas and produces a beam of light with a wavelength that is absorbed only by specific pigments such as hemoglobin and melanin, and passes harmlessly through other materials such as fluids. Argon laser therapy utilizes this technology to treat multiple gastrointestinal conditions including hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. For additional information about this laser therapy, contact our gastrointestinal specialists at GI Alliance to schedule an appointment.

Laser therapies, in general, are more precise than other procedures which means the treatment is more focused on the damaged or problematic tissue. Incisions can be made shorter and shallower and cause less overall tissue trauma. Patients generally tend to recover more quickly from laser operations than from traditional surgery. 

 

Is argon laser therapy safe?

As with any medical operation, there are risks involved. However, due to the focused nature of laser therapy, it is often considered less of a risk than other surgical procedures. Some of the associated risks include pain, reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection. Your safety is extremely important to the GI doctors at GI Alliance. Talk with our team to learn more about how we keep you safe while providing you with reliable treatment.

Our clinical team will provide you with specific preparation instructions that you should take prior to argon laser therapy. You may be advised to stop taking certain medications that could put you at risk during the surgery. You should also plan for some recovery time and travel following your procedure, as you will still be slightly sedated. Please be sure to ask any questions that you may have about the argon laser treatment process during your consultation.

At GI Alliance, we strive to provide the most comprehensive GI care possible to help you and your loved ones enjoy better digestive health. We are proud to offer the argon laser treatment option to address a range of gastrointestinal concerns. To learn if argon therapy might be right for you, please contact a GI Alliance location in your community to schedule an appointment with a gastroenterology specialist.

From the moment I walked in the door at 7:30 a.m. to the time I left to go home, I had a 5-star experience with Dr. Seetharam and his team. My first interaction at the Endoscopy Center was with the two receptionists, both of whom were warm and welcoming. They both put my anxiety at ease with their smiles. Next up was the team that took my vitals and inserted my IV. Again a terrific experience - both of these team members were very personable and any fears I had dissipated right away. The team inside the Endoscopy Room similarly displayed the same level of warmth and compassion as the team members that I previously interacted with - it is clear that all team members at the Center receive the highest level of patient care training. My last (but not least!) interaction was with Dr. Seetharam. He has one of the best bedside manners of any doctors I have ever interacted with. Again, like his other team members, he exudes warmth and compassion. Thank you to the Scottsdale Endoscopy Center for a 5-Star Experience!

Dr Vinson is a great doctor. He actually listens so he can provide the solution

I really liked Dr. Piesman and I am glad that I was referred to him by another doctor. Dr. Piesman got my endoscopy done before I left town on a trip. The thing I liked the best was that he respected my thoughts on my health, even if he may not have agreed. My only complaint was that I felt rushed in my initial appointment and forgot a few other things I wanted to tell him. Other than that, I am very satisfied and look forward to discussing other aspects of my health with him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rau's for many years. She is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! She is always concerned and NEVER rushes you through your appointment. She listens and caringly gives you her advice. I recommend her to the world! Just love her! Her staff is very friendly also!
