Medical lasers are designed for use in hospitals, outpatient surgical centers, and physician offices. They combine cutting, ablation, and coagulation properties for precise, virtually bloodless procedures; minimizing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue and increasing recovery time. They also sanitize the area through the heat of the laser, destroying any microbiological bodies that could lead to infection. Although medical lasers are valuable to many medical treatment applications, they do generate waste heat that affects the lasers performance when in operation. They also have size constraints, power consumption requirements, and noise restrictions that make thermal management difficult.
