Well, it would be best to consult with your own doctor who knows your case better than me.  

I would say that if you feel comfortable with your doctor, then you should follow their recommendation of laser surgery.  Have they tried other, non-invasive treatments at all?  You may want to discuss with them and ask them what they think is best.

I don't treatment OSMF so I'm not as familiar with the treatments.  I did some research and there is only one study which showed improvement with a laser treatment.  But I can't find anything which states its the treatment of choice.

Its always better to consult with your own doctor rather than any one else  because your own only doctor knows the case than any one else.
