Lighting the way in advanced surgical care.
Most of us don’t stop to think about the impact new advancements in medical care have our daily lives—until we need them. Laser surgery is one of these innovations, allowing surgeons to use special, targeted light beams to perform procedures ranging from delicate plastic surgeries to potentially life-saving techniques.
These progressive improvements in many ways mirror the ongoing advances in surgical care offered at the Rochester General Laser Center. Our board-certified surgeons are continuously researching new laser applications in health care and use their expertise in clinical applications and education to advance the use of laser surgery for minimally invasive treatments.
In collaboration with specialists in other divisions, including the Division of Plastic Surgery and the Division of Urology, our multidisciplinary surgical team provides superior, comprehensive care and the most appropriate treatment for your condition to ensure you receive the best possible outcome.
The Rochester General Laser Center is an internationally recognized, full-service laser center and a regional referral center for the treatment of complex surgical problems.
