Hey Doc, I've got a friend who was having trouble with her knee and the family doc had done an xray and a bone spur showed up on the outer side of her femur close to the joint. The ortho reccomended therapy and said hopefully that would take care of it. She is in a lot of pain and is only comfortable when she holds it straight. The doc said that if therapy didn't help, the he would do surgery to remove the spur. My question is..would it just make more sense to do surgery in the first place? How would therapy gid rid of a bone spur? Thanks!
