Burs, Foot Care

Definition : Burs designed to be held and spun by a rotary device (e.g., handpiece, drilling machine) for gentle removal and/or excavation of soft or hard foot tissue in foot care procedures (i.e., podiatric nonsurgical procedures). These devices typically consist of a shank of steel or other hard metal with a well-differentiated working head of various shapes (e.g., cone, cylinder, inverted cone, pear) and materials (e.g., diamond, metal carbide) on the distal end; a tapered, notched, or elongated proximal end to fit into a rotary device; and a neck that connects the shank to the working part. Dedicated podiatric burs are available for use in podiatrist offices to debride excrescences and to handle heavy nails and/or plantar calluses with reduced heat and minimum dust. Conventional orthopedic burs are used in podiatric surgery.
