LightScalpel is an FDA-registered, American-based designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art, durable and ultra-ergonomic carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers that are designed, built, and serviced in-house, at our facility in Bothell, WA, USA.
The CO2 laser was invented in the USA
The CO2 laser, which is the golden standard for vascular tissue surgeries, was invented in 1964 in the USA by C. Kumar N. Patel, PhD, MSc.
Critical CO2 laser technologies were invented in the USA (all metal laser tube and flexible fiber)
The LightScalpel’s predecessor, the Luxar Corporation, first introduced the all-metal RF-excited CO2 lasers and flexible waveguides for CO2 lasers, in 1988. The incorporation and marriage of these two systems dramatically changed CO2 surgical lasers bringing the technology into the 21st century. Luxar lasers outperformed their articulated arm competitors and became the most popular surgical CO2 lasers ever sold, with over 10,000 customers worldwide.
LightScalpel CO2 lasers are designed in the USA
Building off the Luxar Laser legacy, LightScalpel introduced its first laser system in 2012. The new LightScalpel laser systems boast improved ergonomic lightweight handpieces, more durable waveguides and all-metal laser tubes, along with intuitive touch-screen user controls. LightScalpel laser systems are the brainchild of an electrical engineer and former founder of Luxar Corporation, Paul Diaz MScEE, Member IEEE, and laser physicist and former Chief Scientist of the Luxar Corporation, Peter Vitruk, PhD, MInstP, CPhys. We continuously work on improving our technology for use in everyday surgeries, whether designing a more durable waveguide system, improved electrical systems, or new accessories.
