Battling the War Against Toenail Fungus
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Dr. Mark E. Spier, a Baltimore Maryland Podiatrist and a leading forefoot and reconstructive surgeon, will be celebrating his four year anniversary using the PinPointe FootLaser to treat nail fungus. Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery in foot and ankle surgery, Dr. Spier leads the treatment of toenail fungus in the Baltimore, Maryland area. Dr. Spier was the first provider in Maryland to be able to offer the PinPointe Footlaser to treat toenail fungus while continuing his dedication to innovative treatments.
Toenail fungus, also known as Onychomycosis, affects approximately 10 to 14 percent of the United States population according to Physician's Desk Reference. PDR also states that people over the age of 60 that suffer from Onychomycosis is 25 to 40 percent. There are many possible causes of Onychomycosis including, but not limited to, athlete's foot,tight footwear, use of community pools/locker rooms and physical activity without proper foot care afterwards.
According to Wikipedia, "The most common symptom of a fungal nail infection is the nail becoming thickened and discoloured: white, black, yellow or green. As the infection progresses the nail can become brittle, with pieces breaking off or coming away from the toe or finger completely. If left untreated, the skin can become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail. There may also be white or yellow patches on the nailbed or scaly skin next to the nail. There is usually no pain or other bodily symptoms, unless the disease is severe."
Dr. Spier has successfully treated over two thousand patients in his Baltimore Maryland offices using the PinPointe Footlaser since April 2009. Take a look at this video about Laser Treatment of Toenail Fungus in Baltimore MD by Dr Spier.
