Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Valley Foot Surgeons, Arizona’s Award Winning podiatry practice serving Phoenix and Scottsdale, is now offering revolutionary laser treatment for toenail fungus. The laser treatment for toenail fungus is performed as an outpatient as an effective painless alternative to oral medications. Call (480) 994-5977 for more information and scheduling.
Onychomycosis, or toenail fungal infection, can lead to pain with walking and unsightly toenails. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 12% of Americans suffer with onychomycosis. The older treatment, oral medications, may take a year to work and there is a risk of liver damage.
Anecdotal reports from Valley Foot Surgeons and other podiatrists in the US have shown 80% effectiveness for the laser treatment. Valley Foot uses a Class IV laser for the treatments, which take approximately 30 minutes. One study published in the American Podiatric Medical Association found that 85% of nails showed new growth without fungus, and that was after only four laser treatments.
The medical director of Valley Foot Surgeons, Dr. Richard Jacoby, has seen excellent results with the laser treatments for the toenail fungus. “Our results have been right in line with the 85% published literature, and it’s virtually painless. It’s much lower risk than the oral medication route that’s for sure.”
Valley Foot offers the laser treatments along with having expert foot doctors treating tendon injuries, fractures, peripheral and diabetic neuropathy and all common podiatry conditions. The medical director, Richard Jacoby, has received the Phoenix Magazine’s Top Doc Award four times in the past 10 years.
