Dr Murnane started using lasers for surgery in 2007. Lip and Tongue tie release is a basic Oral Surgery procedure commonly carried out on children and teenagers by all Oral Surgeons. In fact Oral Surgeons are probably the most qualified individuals to carry out such a procedure. Dr Murnane has spent time in Kings Hospital Tongue Tie clinic learning tongue tie release with a scissors, however the scissors technique is very limited. Use of a laser allows for a more complete cut and the ability to guarantee the tie is cut completely.
