What is argon laser therapy?
Argon lasers are devices that use argon gas to produce a stream of light with a wavelength that is absorbed only by specific pigments like melanin and hemoglobin, and passes without damage through many other materials such as fluids. Argon laser therapy applies this therapy to address many gastrointestinal problems, a few of which are hemorrhages, dysphagia, mucosal lesions, and strictures. If you are in need of argon laser therapy in Denver, CO, our team can help. To learn more about this therapy, reach out to our gastroenterologists at Colorado Gastroenterology to request an appointment.
What are the benefits of argon laser therapy?
Laser therapies, in general, have more precision than other procedures, with the result being the treatment is more focused on the problematic or diseased tissue. Incisions can, therefore, be made shallower and shorter and result in less cumulative trauma to the tissue. Individuals generally tend to benefit from more expedited recovery following laser operations than what is expected from traditional surgery.
Is argon laser therapy safe?
As in any medical operation, there are risks involved. Still, due to the extreme precision of laser therapy, it is most often considered less of a risk than other surgical approaches. Some of the potential risks can include pain, reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection. Your wellbeing is extremely important to the gastrointestinal doctors at Colorado Gastroenterology.

Dr Rufner is a man outstanding in his field.He has improved my situation exponentially.He is a very decent human being.Id reccomended him to anyone.
Great experience. Dr. Rufner was very down to earth and explained the procedure in a way that we all understood. The hardest part, was in the waiting room where a couple people I think were from Mars. Had a good 30 minute nap at IT WAS OVER.
Efficient and friendly...professional and on time. A good experience
Procedure was professional. But even tho I followed the prep directions to a T, my system was not fully prepped for the colonoscopy. Therefore, the doctor couldn’t see much of my colon. I continued to have diarrhea for four more days. Also, the first nurse couldn’t insert one, and then two blood ports in my right hand, the second nurse installed a port successfully on my left hand on the first try. It was a difficult day, made more difficult by these near misses.
A very good experience
