The concept behind laser technology dates back to the early 20th century and is reflected in Albert Einstein’s theory that atoms give off and absorb energy and, if stimulated, can deliver that energy in a precise direction and wavelength. The first medical laser laboratory was developed in 1961 at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine’s Dermatology department. Today, surgical and non-invasive laser technologies are employed throughout many medical specialties including diagnostics, cardiology, oncology, gynecology, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, urology, cosmetic surgery, and dermatology. Advantages to medical laser procedures include faster healing in surgical applications and greater precision in minimally-invasive treatments.
