Bone laser nears trials in UK
This article was originally published in Clinica
A laser which generates enough energy to cut through bone without damaging surrounding tissue could enter human trials in the UK soon. A team from Manchester University and Hope Hospital, Manchester, UK, have developed an erbium:YAG laser which works at 2.94 micro m, suitable for cutting bone with minimal collateral damage. Research models of the laser have been built but additional funding is required to progress to the clinical stage.
