Our patients are happy to have a new option in the treatment of toenail fungus that doesn't have any side effects, says Bonnie Tatar of Tatar Podiatry Group.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 22, 2010
Pittsburgh based Dr. Bonnie Tatar at the Tatar Podiatry Group is proud to use the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ which was recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis), a condition estimated to affect more than 10 percent of the U.S. population – or 35 million Americans. “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.
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.
Dr. Tatar has been using the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ for over a year and has treated patients with amazing results. “Our patients are happy to have a new option in the treatment of toenail fungus that doesn’t have any side effects,” says Tatar. “We are pleased to be seeing results using this leading edge laser technology.”
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. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and can be done comfortably in the privacy of a doctor’s office with little or no discomfort.
Dr. Bonnie Tatar has been a doctor of podiatric medicine for over nineteen years in the Pittsburgh area. Through the years she has provided thousands of medical diagnoses and treatments of foot and ankle problems. “ At Tatar Podiatry Group, we believe that a doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual's feet,” says Dr. Tatar. “Our physicians spend most of their time listening to understand your concerns and responding with the best treatment options for you.”
