Laser Surgery for bone spurs!?

Posted by Stacey B on 12/27/01 at 23:10 (067940)

I have a friend who cannot afford to be out of work for 3 weeks and has been receiving accupunture for his spurs (in his heels). That gives him a little relief but he had heard something about laser surgery for bone spurs. Is there a such thing? If not maybe some alternatives? He is on his feet all day and has already bought the 'Nike' shoes - that didn't help. Can yall give some input?. Thank You.

There is ESWT for heel spur pain. This is a very effective non-surgical treatment, that is done in the doctor office. Read the section on ESWT.. WE have done ESWT for the past two years with very effective pain resolution

There isn't true but we do have ESWT. This is the non-invasive procedure that avoid cutting and all of the complications that go with foot surgery. Our group has been using ESWT for the past three years. IF you would like our ESWT informational packet e-mail Dr. Z at (email removed)
