LASER CIRCUMCISION

The term "laser" originated as an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser is a device that emits light (electromagnetic radiation) through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of photons.  A powerful beam of light that can produce intense heat when focused at close range. Lasers are used in medicine in microsurgery, Aesthetic medicine, cauterization, for diagnostic purposes., etc. For example, lasers are employed in microsurgery to cut tissue and remove tissue.

The used in circumcision is solely for cutting process as in combination of the gullotin technique. Stitches is necessary as conventional method to prevent further bleeding. The main advantages of laser cutting is very precise, sharp and clean cut with minimal bleeding. It only produce a very minimal of burn injury around 0.5 micron.  

alis021Most of the laser circumcision offered by ordinary clinic is actually not using laser machine because one laser machine cost more then RM 150,000.00 and it is not cost effective to charge laser circumcision around RM150.00 or less. Usually they used high voltage electrical machine calledElectrocautery.
