Electrosurgery instruments use high frequency radio waves to cut, coagulate, or remove tissue with little or no bleeding. This course will teach the clinical and histological significance of frequency and waveform and how to control lateral heat to reduce tissue alteration. The shave technique, unique to electrosurgery/radiosurgery, is also discussed. This allows the practitioner to contour or remove tissue without using sutures and with minimal discomfort to the patient. The advantages, disadvantages, precautions, and indications for the use of electrosurgery are discussed. Clinicians will see how electrosurgery can become a routine, safe, and predictable procedure in their practices.
