Philadelphia, PA (Vocus) November 17, 2010
Philadelphia based Dr. Eric Ricefield and his partners at Your Next Step.net are proud to be local podiatrists who use the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ which has now received official FDA clearance for the treatment of toenail fungus (onychomycosis). The announcement from PinPointe USA, Inc. came in late October. “PinPointe™ is the first and only laser to receive this coveted FDA clearance specifically for treating toenail fungus, an embarrassing infection that causes a thickening and yellowing of the toenails. It is estimated that about 10 percent – or nearly 35 million adults in the United States alone have this embarrassing condition.
There are a lot of doctors advertising laser treatments that claim they work on toenail fungus, but the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is the only laser that has been clinically proven and has passed the rigorous testing of the FDA to receive clearance. In a recent clinical study, 81 percent of all patients saw sustained improvement at 12 months after just one treatment with the laser.
During the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ treatment, a specially-designed laser beam is directed across the nail. The laser penetrates the nail bed, targeting the fungi responsible for the infection, while leaving the nail and surrounding healthy tissue intact.
Dr. Ricefield and his partners have been using the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ and have helped hundreds of patients experience amazing results. ”The procedure only takes about 30 minutes and is done comfortably in the privacy of our offices at Your Next Step.” says Dr. Ricefield. “We are thrilled to be seeing consistent results using this leading edge laser technology.” With their experience, Dr. Ricefield and his partners have perfected the use of the laser to get maximum results for their patients and help them get free of embarrassing toenail fungus.
Dr. Ricefield and his partners practice podiatric medicine in the Philadelphia area and have provided hundreds of medical diagnoses and treatments of foot and ankle problems. “We provide the highest quality podiatric care for our patients” says Dr. Ricefield. “Our approach is innovative and caring using state-of-the-art technology in providing treatment for foot and ankle conditions.”
