    Barbotage (Non Surgical Bone Spur Treatment)

    Does anyone have any experience with the following treatment for bone spurs? The area is numbed and then a needle is placed under ultrasound guidance to break up the bone spur. The spur is then naturally reabsorbed by the body and the joint can now move freely. This is a great example of how stem cell therapy can be combined with advanced image guided needle techniques to help restore normal joint function.

    No. I was 28 when I had my toe joint replaced. I was told 25 years later by another podiatrist that it was a botch job and I should have sued. I didn't know any better. I hope you get the resources you need to be more informed than I was! Good luck~

    RE: Barbotage (Non Surgical Bone Spur Treatment)

    Are you talking about ANY kind of bone spur, ANYwhere? I happen to have one on my L4 or L5 vertebra. It is pressing on my sciatic nerve and causing intense pain down my right leg, especially in the thigh. I'd like to just have the "spur" removed. Can this be applied to spinal surgery?
