Toenail Fungus

May 05, 12:03 PM

Many people are reluctant to talk about their toenail fungus. Not only is it unsightly, but it also may be painful. Approximately 40 million Americans suffer from toenail fungus. Treatment options have been limited to topical and oral medications with success rates of only 8 percent. That is because the fungus grows underneath the nail and it’s difficult to penetrate through the nail to kill the fungus. Prescription medicine, such as Lamisil, can have side effects.

As a podiatrist, I’ve seen patients with toenail fungus for more than 20 years. After much research, I’m pleased to be able to offer laser treatment – a revolutionary breakthrough in the treatment of toenail fungus. Clinical studies reveal that laser treatment has a 70-88% success rate. Learn more by clicking here.

The laser treatment is painless, safe, requires no anesthesia, and most patients just need one treatment. The review a video on the procedure, click here. It’s not covered by insurance, just like Lasik laser eye surgery is not covered, but it can be covered through flexible healthcare savings accounts and it beats the cost of repeated topical and oral medications that can become equally expensive.
