diode laser

A compact laser designed with semiconductors, with wavelengths from 800 to 1000 nm, used in skin, eye, and urological surgeries.

Patient care

Care involves general support, giving explanations, and answering questions. Equipment must be checked and regulations followed, esp. those that involve fire safety. The surgeon is given assistance, as needed.
