Abstract

The experimental use of lasers in surgery and medicine began only shortly after the development of the first working laser system. However, the development of practical, effective, and safe surgical lasers has been lengthy with many obstacles and delays. Today the laser is used for a wide variety of surgical operations. The fundamental limits and potential for future applications of lasers in surgery and medicine are discussed.
