Laser Surgery

Laser surgery - Overview

The overarching field of oncology has a number of ways to diagnose and treat cancer. Medical oncology often uses chemotherapy drugs to attack the cancer, while radiation oncology relies on various forms of radiation therapy. Hematology-oncology treats blood cancers. Dermatology, interventional pulmonology and other fields of medicine may also be involved in the process.

Surgical oncology is the field of cancer care that focuses on surgery to diagnose, stage and treat cancer, and to manage some cancer-related symptoms.


To diagnose cancers, surgical oncologists may perform biopsies. Biopsy procedures can include:

  • Needle biopsies such as fine needle aspiration or core biopsies
  • Excisional (removing an entire suspicious area, such as a mole or tumor)
  • Incisional (removing a portion of a suspicious area)
  • Laparotomy (abdominal surgery)
  • Endoscopic or laparoscopic (surgery using a scope)
  • Skin biopsy


Laser therapy can be used to:

  • Destroy tumors and precancerous growths
  • Shrink tumors that are blocking the stomach, colon, or esophagus
  • Help treat cancer symptoms, such as bleeding
  • Treat cancer side effects, such as swelling
  • Seal nerve endings after surgery to reduce pain
  • Seal lymph vessels after surgery to reduce swelling and keep tumor cells from spreading

Lasers are most often used with other types of cancer treatment such as radiation and chemotherapy.
