Successfully Implement Surgical Laser Solutions at Your Practice with On-Site Training

a group of doctors taking a training courseWhen implementing a new procedure or piece of equipment at your practice, having the right training is essential. That’s why our medical laser manufacturers also offer comprehensive didactic and hands-on clinical workshops and onsite physician and staff training.

Comprehensive Technical, Operational, and Clinical Training

Our training programs are packed with useful information including an overview of laser physics and fundamentals, absorption characteristics, modes of operation, and techniques. Understanding the science behind the laser solutions you implement will significantly increase your ability to perform procedures for your patients. We also go over the operational efficiencies and safety considerations of the surgical lasers.

Live Clinical Workshops with an Experienced Laser Clinician

In addition to didactic training, we also offer hands-on live patient clinical workshops. Our experienced laser clinician also provides in-office operational and surgical training for new users. Our clinical trainers have over 30 years of OR training and experience across multiple medical disciplines.

SLI Onsite Training

Our onsite training helps clients optimize the clinical experience safely and effectively. Our training includes system orientation, functionality, consumables, safety, sterilization, operational technique recommendations, and reference information.

In-Office Laser BPH – Enhancing the Patient Experience

When creating new treatment methods, increasing patient comfort should always be a goal. This is why the ability to perform BPH treatments in an office setting instead of an OR is such a breakthrough. This treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia achieves permanent results with a shorter recovery time and can be performed in your office with the portable and compact Pathfinder Laser.

Comfort

Innovative urology lasers have made resection of the prostate much easier for both surgeons and patients. Still, not many patients are comfortable with OR surgical procedures. Being able to perform this operation in your office instead of an OR provides the patient with the comfort of familiar surroundings. The operation is performed by a familiar face: their urologist, which makes patients feel more confident and patient acceptance for the procedure rises.

Convenience

The Pathfinder in-office laser solution is incredibly convenient. Patients go to their urologist’s office for the procedure and can go home the same day. You also have the option of using only local anesthetic, eliminating the potential complications that come with anesthesia.

Cost-Effective

The Pathfinder Laser is a cost-effective solution for BPH. You don’t have to use hospital resources, you can perform more procedures in a day because total treatment times are shoter, and total treatment costs with the Pathfinfer laser and fibers are lower regardless of where the treatments are perfromed (office or OR).
