Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to produce a stream of light with a wavelength that is absorbed specifically by pigments including melanin and hemoglobin and passes without impact through a lot of substances like fluids. Argon laser therapy uses this technology to treat multiple GI problems including dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures. If you are looking into argon laser therapy in Lubbock, TX, our team can help. Contact our GI providers at your nearest Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates location to request a consultation.

Laser therapies have more precision than alternative procedures, meaning that they can focus more on the damaged or problematic tissue. Surgical cuts can be made smaller and more superficially and result in significantly less overall trauma to the tissue. Individuals often tend to recover more quickly from laser treatments than from more traditional surgery.

As with any procedure, risks are present. Still, due to the extreme precision of laser therapy, it is most often thought to be less of a risk than other surgical approaches. Some of the associated risks include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and pain.

Dr. Rakvit is extremely approachable and personable. I have been suffering for over 15 years with a condition that I had accepted as just the way it is. But x I was referred to Dr. Rakvit and she listened to what I was saying a n d took steps to correct my condition. Life is good again.

1st time I have ever had a scope but for what needed to be done LDDA took really good care of me. I wish there was an easier way to prep, that was honestly not fun but the procedure itself, I was put out and in no pain. The staff was excellent and I was negative and good for another 10 years. Gastroenterologist Dr. Arwin Rackvit took really good care of me during the procedure. I really appreciate her and the staff. Thank you again for the great care. Virgina Peek
