At Adler Footcare, we believe feet shouldn't hurt and neither should their treatment." -Dr. Jeffrey Adler
New York, New York (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Dr. Jeffrey Adler, Medical/Surgical Director and Owner of Adler Footcare, recently presented at the Aerolase International Clinical Summit 2013 held in New York on October 19 about a study recent performed at Adler Footcare using toenail fungus laser treatment that resulted in over a 90% success rate in patients with toenail fungus.
The clinical study method focused on 200 toes over a 14-month period, all of which tested positive for toenail fungus (Onychomycosis). The LightPod Neo Nd: YAG laser by Aerolase was used for two treatments spaced 30 days apart. Once the laser treatment was performed the patients also used a topical antifungal treatment to help protect the nail from re-infection. A UV shoe tree was also used to keep shoes clean and help prevent re-infection by making sure that any fungal bacteria was destroyed in shoes the patients wore prior to treatment.
Once the treatments were completed a post-op was done to test for the presence of fungus. The results showed that 90% of patients tested negative for toenail fungus. Of the 10% that tested positive, 80% of them tested negative after the course of treatments was repeated.
“At Adler Footcare, we use a very careful protocol to make sure we aren’t treating you for something you don’t have,” said Dr. Jeffrey Adler. “That’s why we do the pathology first to make sure you have toenail fungus before recommending the laser treatment. We take great pride in our patients and treat them with the highest standards of patient care.”
Toenail fungus affects about 35 million people worldwide. Toenail fungus laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that shines a laser light beam onto the infected area of the nail and kills the pathogens causing the infection. It’s FDA approved, safe, fast, and there are minimal to no side effects. Patients start seeing results as soon as the new nail begins to grow out.
