My dad has been having trouble with his feet for some time now. He went to the podiatrist and was told he has spurs and the Dr. suggested he have some Lasar Surgery to remove the spurs, the only downside is that it costs $6000. Does anyone know if they do this surgery at a podiatric school? ie: Scholl school of podiatry in chicago, when he can get it for cheaper?

You don't mention what sort of problems he has been having with his feet. You also do not mention anything about what has already been tried for treatment and/or whether any of this has helped.

The $6000 figure sounds high. I would question this. Seems as though there might be less expensive alternatives that should be tried first. With no information about the problem or the treatments tried it is impossible to give any opinion.

I would look at other alternatives first.
