A Searchable Archive of Medical/Surgical/Cosmetic Laser Business and Technology News for 1996-2005

Medical Laser Business and Technology News Archive

Archive of Medical/Surgical/Cosmetic Laser Business and Technology News for 1996 - 2005

As with the archive of Ophthalmic Laser Business and Technology News, previously posted on this site (link:, I also compiled an archive for the Medical/Sugical/Cosmetic Laser Business and Technology News.

For over ten years, from the Fall of 1995 until December 2005, I wrote and published the monthly Executive Laser Briefing (ELB) newsletter (Figure 1). It was then sold to Trends-in-Medicine and continues to be published as Executive Laser Report (Figure 2).

Each issue of ELB contained news releases, analyst reports, and commentary about the various companies and laser technologies making news during that time frame. Each months issue consisted of about 40-50 pages, roughly half of which was about ophthalmic lasers and the remainder about medical/surgical/cosmetic laser information.

At the end of each year, I compiled all of the ophthalmic and medical/surgical news separately, and placed it into a yearly summary. The annual medical/surgical/cosmetic summaries for the years 1995/1996-2005, containing between 100 to 300 pages, are presented below in a publically accessible cloud storage space on Dropbox. (There is only partial information available for 1995, as the newsletter was started in the Fall of that year.)

The medical/surgical archives have also been published by the American Society for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) on its website (for members only). The ophthalmic laser summaries, as noted above, can be found in a separate archive by following this link.

To access each year’s file, just click on that year’s link and the pdf file should open in an Adobe PDF reader on your browser. You can save each file to your computer and search the archives for a company or type of laser by using either the Adobe search tool or the “find” feature available on each computer (control F).
