What is argon laser therapy?
An argon laser is a device that uses argon gas to produce a channel of light characterized by a wavelength that is absorbed only by specific pigments, such as melanin and hemoglobin, and moves without impact through many other materials, such as fluids. Argon laser therapy is used to address many gastrointestinal problems, a few of which are hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. If you are seeking argon laser therapy in Connecticut, we can help. For additional information about this laser therapy, reach out to our GI specialists at your nearest Connecticut GI location to request an appointment.
What are the benefits of argon laser therapy?
Laser therapies, for the most part, are more precise than alternate methods; therefore, this procedure can focus on only the problematic or diseased tissue. Surgical cuts are made more superficially and shallower and cause significantly less resulting tissue trauma. Patients tend to benefit from more expedited recovery from laser operations than expected from traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As with any surgery, there are risks. Still, due to the precise focus of laser therapy, it is generally considered a lower risk compared to alternate surgical procedures. A partial list of the associated risks can include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your safety is of the utmost importance to the gastroenterologists at Connecticut GI. Connect with our practice to hear more about how our procedures keep you safe, while providing you with reliable treatment.
How can I prepare for argon laser treatment?
Our Connecticut clinical team will give you specific preparation directions to adhere to before your argon laser therapy. You may be advised to stop using particular medications that can increase risk during the treatment. You should also plan for some recovery time and travel following your surgery, considering you will most likely remain somewhat sedated. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have about the argon laser treatment process when you consult with your provider.

I highly recommend Doctor Beecher. He did an amazing job on my endoscopy and when I recently had a tummy ache he got me in the very next day and gave me excellent treatment and advice. I highly recommend this very gifted physician
I’m in good hands.
I met Dr. Woods when I was hospitalized. He performed my endoscopy. I hadn’t met him previously but I was so impressed with him; his warmth, personality, the time he spent with me, patiently answering my questions. I have continued seeing him and am so glad to have him on my team.
I would definitely recommend Dr Bloom to family and friends. He is understanding, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. He doesn't treat you like a number. He is aware of your medical history, takes time to explain things so you can understand and comes up with a plan of treatment.
Pleasant and efficient visit with Dr. Selden prior to colonoscopy.
