Infection, introduced into the foot initially by the stone, has weaselled its way up through the foot and taken a cookie-monster bite out of the coffin bone.
With some skilled knife work, he managed to coax the nasty stone from the foot, albeit with a little bleeding. In technical terms, we would call this pedal osteomyelitis, with radiographic finding of demineralization of the solar margin of the distal phalanx.
Whether doing incisions, excisions, dissections or ablations, CO2 laser surgery is always noncontact; therefore it minimizes tissue trauma while providing a strong sterilizing effect by killing surface bacteria. CO2 Laser Power Settings The power of the CO2 laser is critically important for high quality incisions, excisions and dissections performed in one path with minimum thermal damage to the margins—the higher the power, the faster the incision can be performed without multiple back and forth movements of the laser beam.
An ultrasound examination was inconclusive.

While the diode is primarily used for Dr. Surgery is still the most effective modality for the treatment of cancer because it can often provide an immediate cure or palliation of pain, with minimal and temporary side effects.
