What is argon laser therapy?
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.
What are the benefits of argon laser therapy?
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.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
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. Discuss with our team to hear more regarding the ways we protect your safety while providing you with effective treatment.

Dr. Vincent was smart, clear & succinct. He calmed me by answering my concerns & questions.
Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and comforting.
The staff are professional and friendly. It's a very comfortable environment. Dr.Brown took his time and listened to my questions and concerns. My only complaint with Indy Gastro is the length of time it takes for nurses to return calls when you are having a problem.
One of the best Doctors I have ever seen! Love Dr Troiano!
Dr. Vincent and his team made an uncomfortable procedure more than tolerable! They took excellent care of me and I would recommend them to anyone!
