Laser Surgery

pic_r6.jpgLaser has limited use in podiatric surgery and contrary to popular belief, it cannot be used to cut bone or to perform bunion surgery. This is due, in part, to the fact that it's high-intensity light beam is not powerful enough to penetrate and cut through bone. We can however, use it to excise soft tissue lesions such as porokeratotic lesions, neuromas, and other soft tissue masses. The LASER that is most often used in podiatric applications is the CO2 LASER. LASER surgery is quick, relatively painless, and has a fast recovery period. It is often performed in a doctor's office under local anesthesia.
