HFR FAQ / Why use electrosurgery in veterinary practice?

The primary rationale for electrosurgery is because it allows surgery with concurrent hemostasis to be performed. In addition it performs coagulation in order to control bleeding or to desiccate diseased tissue (ablation). It may also be used to seal vessels.

Common uses of electrosurgery are: General surgery, emergency care, neuter, dental, oral, de-claw, de-bark, ear crop, tail dock, eyelid surgery, eyelid epilation, treating dermal lesions, biopsy, and to control bleeding in hemolytic compromise.
