    The use of lasers in neurosurgical procedures has received a great deal of attention recently. Surgical use of lasers has been viewed with suspicion and skepticism, probably because of (justified) apprehensions about the misuse of lasers in early work and about the ways in which laser light affects tissues, and a lack of understanding of the basic physics and practical operation of lasers. The authors review the physics, biophysics, experimental findings, and operative use of lasers in current neurosurgical practice, and discuss briefly their experience gained in over 150 neurosurgical procedures using the carbon dioxide and argon surgical lasers.
