Physicians of many specialties perform laser surgery applicable to their specialty, such as ophthalmologists using laser for retina surgery, dermatologists for skin conditions, and plastic surgeons for operations where laser provides the best outcomes. It's not about the type of laser (or manufacturer), or even the specialty of the user, but the skill, training, and experience of the laser surgeon.
