Laser treatment works like a magic wand so there is need to design a special certificate course to teach this as a future science across the world, said Thailand's eminent plastic surgeon Narong Nimsakul in Indore on Thursday.
He was addressing the second day of the international conference of the International Society for Laser Surgery and Medicine (ISLSM) at a city hotel. The conference is a four-day event which is being attended by eminent medical experts from across the world.
Reading out his paper on multiple usage of laser treatment, Narong said, "Laser is like a magic wand for humans. But the person making use of that wand is important as it can make a lot of difference. It can either heal or cause damage."
Narong, the father of Happy Boy, a laser circumcision device invented by him, talked about the technique behind the device.
Taiwan Medical Alliance Association president Ming Chien Kao said, "Laser surgeries are areas which are open for a lot of innovation and techniques. People are researching about these techniques for years. The only problem is dissemination of this knowledge through trained doctors. The aim of this conference is to make people aware about this and to put the topic of laser safety on table." Taiwan is the first country in the world to adopt a medical course in laser surgery.
The programme was inaugurated by dean of Jabalpur medical science college A Lokwani. He said, "Lasers have played an amazing role in making life better for cancer patients or people operated for piles or haemorrihoids as it lessens the pain."
He said the notable aspect of laser surgery was that the patient could return home the same day.
