The gadgets and gizmos that were available for the surgeons to play with increased and improved with advancements in technology. The latest entrant into this field is the Ho Yag Laser. The Institute which is a part of GAURI, opened in June2014 after Dr.Karthik Gunasekaran’s specialized training with Lasers. The laser beam is a fine cutting and coagulating tool and can be used for a good range of pelvic floor surgeries. The tissue that comes in contact with the laser beam separates seamlessly and the blood loss is non existent.The AURIGA German Ho Yag Laser system that the institute uses is a fabulous vessel sealer and cutter. The charring is limited to a minimum and this prevents adhesion formation.
