Surgical and therapeutic use of lasers began in human medicine in the early 1960s. Technology and equipment advanced rapidly. Over the last ten years veterinarians have been exploring the many potential advantages that various lasers provide their patients. Because laser light energy can be applied directly to target tissue or administered to distant lesions at a remote site through fiberoptic components, laser surgery has become an invaluable and growing veterinary surgical resource.

Routine laser use in veterinary medicine stands poised to gain large-scale general acceptance for everyday routine and specialty procedures. Written by experts in the field, Veterinary Laser Surgery: A Practical Guide strives to help general and specialty veterinary practitioners understand, implement and expand the use of laser energy in safe and rational ways for both surgical and therapeutic procedures to further improvement the veterinarians ability to enhance the patient’s quality of life.

Broad spectrum of specific laser information, including chapters covering basic laser physics through specific laser surgery techniques and pain management. Special sections on CO2 and Diode laser wavelengths. Provides veterinarians with skills and techniques to improve the comfort and quality of patients’ lives through appropriate laser use.

It considers current and future policy and practice, including the Modernising Medical Careers training programme; it promotes a system incorporating more meaningful assessments, rather than just >tests' of knowledge and skill. Assessment in Medical Education and Training will be useful to everyone involved in healthcare education, including tutors, trainers, clinical supervisors and assessors in both primary and secondary care. It will also be important reading for consultants and general practitioners with responsibility for registrars, and healthcare education policy makers and shapers.
