Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to emit a channel of light with a wavelength absorbed specifically by pigments such as melanin and hemoglobin, and that pass harmlessly through many other materials such as fluids. Argon laser therapy applies this technology to help heal many gastrointestinal conditions, a few of which are dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures. If you are looking into argon laser therapy in Indianapolis, IN, our team can help. For additional information about this laser therapy, contact our gastrointestinal specialists at Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology to schedule an appointment.

Laser therapies, as a rule, provide greater precision in comparison to alternative methods, meaning that the approach better targets the problematic or diseased tissue. Incisions can be made smaller and more superficially and create less ensuing trauma to the tissue. Patients generally tend to recover more quickly following laser surgeries than from traditional surgery.

As with any surgery, there are risks. However, due to the extreme precision of laser therapy, it is typically thought to be a lower risk than alternate surgical techniques. Some of the possible risks include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your wellbeing is extremely important to the gastrointestinal physicians at Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

I traveled from out of state. Where I live there is a shortage of GI doctors. I needed my three year follow up colonoscopy, which was due in March. I had a a large precancerous polyp removed the last time. I'm also experiencing new onset bowel changes. I received an appointment within a week. My colonoscopy is scheduled for July 16th. I couldn't be more pleased. The staff is professional. Dr. Jacob's was professional ,non intimidating, and a good listener. 👍

I had persistent diarrhea following gall bladder surgery in 2018. My former internist treated the symptoms but never looked for the reason. In 2023, I relocated to Franklin and was referred to Dr. Thayer Nasereddin. Lucky me! Dr. Nasereddin actually listened to me, ordered a sigmoidoscope and I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis. My life no longer requires planning trips based on the location of the nearest bathroom.
