I did just read in my most recent ACFAS journal about the use of a laser for the surgical removal of heel spurs. I was surprised to hear that there were any lasers that could cut bone. It was the exact procedure that I use except that the treating doctor used a laser instead of a bone rasp to cut out the heel spur.
