New Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

New Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

How does the LASER work?

The LASER kills the fungal infection in and under the affected toenails. The LASER light passes through the affected toenail without causing injury to the underlying nail bed or skin. Please keep in mind that the toenails do not instantly appear clear following treatment as the nails will need to grow out. In general, it takes up to 10 to 12 months for toenails to grow out completely. One

Laser Treatment will kill fungus in most cases. In more severe cases, a second treatment may be necessary, which is offered at no additional cost within a six-month period following the initial treatment. Dr. Wolansky, a Board-certified physician will monitor your progress and determine if the additional treatment is necessary. We are committed to providing you with exceptional comprehensive treatment for your fungal toenail infection as well as other foot and ankle ailments.

Is this treatment safe?

YES. Clinical Studies performed since 2007, show no adverse reactions, side-affects or injuries have been reported with LASER treatment of fungal toenails. Unlike some of the older oral antifungal medications, there are no risks to the liver or other organs. The treatment is safe for adults and children and there are no age restrictions.

Is there any pain with the Laser?

NO. The procedure is done in the office setting without anesthesia or injections. Although most patients do not feel pain, a warming sensation may be felt during the procedure.

Do I need LASER treatment on all of my toenails if only one is affected?

As toenail fungal infections are highly contagious and can eventually spread to adjacent toenails, it is recommended that all ten toenails are treated simultaneously at the time of the initial treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

The Laser Treatment takes about 30 minutes. Following treatment, you may put your shoes back on and walk out of the office. Patients may even polish their toenails the same day following treatment; however, nail polish must be removed prior to LASER treatment.

Can the Fungus infection return?

Clinical reports have demonstrated effectiveness with up to 90% of patients noticing significant improvement just after one treatment. As with any medical or surgical procedure, a guarantee of 100% is virtually impossible; however, we can recommend preventative strategies to reduce the chance of fungal reinfection.

Is this LASER treatment covered by my insurance?

Because LASER treatment of fungal toenails is considered cosmetic and aesthetic, it is not covered by medical insurance plans. We are offering a competitive introductory rate for the treatment and accept major credit cards, debit cards, money orders and checks for your convenience.

Went to the foot and ankle center in Dave because my ankle had been sore for four or five days. After examination Doctor D found that I had a torn ligament by doing a sonogram. I was treated for it and was released in a short most convenient amount of time. I will recommend friends to visit this office for foot and ankle problems.

Dr. D is amazing - she is incredibly thorough, has impressive knowledge, and describes everything in detail. She took the time to go over multiple issues and was very compassionate in her care plan while remaining honest and letting me know what to expect from long-term diagnoses.

I visited this office as a second opinion after not getting any results or satisfaction with a previous podiatrist. Dr. Dabakaroff (Lauren) did an amazing job with her methodical approach to diagnose the issue accurately and provide great … More

From my first phone call with Vicky (at the desk), to meeting Dr. Dabakaroff and Isabella, my experience was wonderful. Dr. D. listened to my plantar fasciitis history; they took x-rays and an ultrasound immediately—right there in the office, which makes all the difference. Dr. D. gave me shots for pain for immediate relief, but is also working with me to stop the pain cycle, including a follow up visit, stretches and shoe suggestions. I’m excited to have found a wonderful podiatrist.

Honestly one of the best doctors I have ever met. I had an infected ingrown toenail and I was extremely nervous about getting it remove. I was able to be seen the same day. Staff were super sweet and reassuring. Dr.Wolansky made me feel so comfortable and walked me through the process as he was doing it. I honestly feel like more doctors like him are needed in the medical field. His bedside manner is impeccable and he truly loves what he does and cares for his patients. My procedure was done with state of the art technology which made me feel even more comfortable. I totally recommend 1000%. You won’t be disappointed!

The staff is amazing, starting with the receptionist. She is always so accommodating with scheduling. She is warm and welcoming and sets a great atmosphere for this office. I had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Lauren and she was very thorough and explained in detail the problems I had been having for years with my feet. Before Dr. Lauren, I went to a couple of doctors with no success. Dr. Lauren is the best at what she does, hands down. She treated me with respect and I walked out their office pain free. From now on, this is my go to office for my feet because this is their specialty. Thank you Dr. Lauren. This is Marlanda Pittman

Dr. Wolansky is outstanding. He takes the time to explain procedures and supports his patient throughout their treatments. His office staff are exceptional. Vickie is amazing, and Chris held my hand through a procedure. Kind and personable people, not many physician offices like this still exist. I would give him 6 stars!
