Visualase is a laser technology that utilizes light energy to destroy soft tissue including tumor or damaged tissue. Laser energy is delivered to the target area (the lesion) using a laser probe.

Because Visualase procedures are guided by MRI images, the procedure can provide precise targeting. The procedure is minimally invasive and has been reported in medical journals to be pain free and require a short recovery time. Read more at visualaseinc.com
