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 moves without impact through other substances such as fluids. Argon laser therapy uses this technology to address multiple GI symptoms including dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures. If you are in need of argon laser therapy in Kansas City, MO, our team can help.

What are some benefits of argon laser therapy?
Laser therapies, in general, have more precision relative to other procedures, ergo, the treatment better targets the diseased or damaged tissue. Incisions are made more superficially and shallower and cause significantly less cumulative tissue trauma. People often tend to recover more quickly from laser treatments than what is expected from traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As found with any operation, there are risks. However, due to the precise focus of laser therapy, it is generally considered less of a risk relative to alternate surgical techniques. Some of the associated risks include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain. Your health is of the utmost importance to the GI providers at Digestive Health Specialists.

Wonderful Drs and staff.
Dr. Clement and staff made me feel very cared for and comfortable. All are friendly and compassionate. My overall experience was great.
Dr Able and staff were very kind, understanding with prior knowledge to what I needed which helped set the plan for moving forward. Thank you!!
My first appointment went very well. Dr. Able came highly recommended by my former gastroenterologist who retired.
Really seemed to care and wanted to figure out what is going on.
