Abstract
The use of laser in medicine has grown rapidly in the past decade. Medical specialties such as ophthalmology, dermatology and podiatry now use lasers as standard surgical tools. Recently new technology has led to the development of hand-held surgical lasers that are highly portable, compact in size and easily manipulated. This technology breakthrough has opened the medical fields of orthopedic and cardiac surgery to the use of lasers with positive clinical results.
