Laser Therapy: The Texas Medical Association favors limiting the use of medically therapeutic lasers to physicians fully licensed in Texas and appropriately trained to use laser therapy and that in the outpatient setting, lasers are utilized only by individuals who have been credentialed for the use of specific types of lasers and who are under the direct supervision of a licensed physician who has documented adequate training and numbers of supervised cases. TMA supports, as a patient safety component, the active enforcement of this physician credentials requirement (Substitute Res. 28O, p 207, A-96; amended CSA Rep. 3-A-06; amended CSPH Rep. 1-A-16).
