The PinPointe FootLaser, which is approved by FDA, is a specially designed laser beam that goes through the toenail and safely reduces the infection in the nail bed that causes Onychomycosis — more commonly known as toenail fungus. The procedure requires one safe, quick treatment, with little or no discomfort and is performed in the doctor’s office with no anesthesia.
The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue and treats only the infected area. No drugs or topical ointments are used, eliminating the total-body side effects of traditional oral medications. Clinical studies show that PinPointe FootLaser reduces fungal infection and promotes clear toenail growth with a single treatment. PinPointe FootLaser is safe, effective and most patients improve after their first treatment.
Safe Quick Toenail Fungus Treatment – No Drugs, Pain or Anesthesia
Introduced in 2008, PinPointe FootLaser uses a patented laser technology to target the pathogens that cause toenail fungus. With PinPointe FootLaser, patients are treated safely and quickly with no drugs, no anesthesia and no pain. PinPointe’s laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. Following the procedure, the new nail will grow in healthy and clear. Unlike medication-driven treatments for toenail fungus, PinPointe FootLaser presents minimal risk of side effects. Competing medication procedures can result in a wide variety of side effects, including liver toxicity.
Custom 3D Scanned Orthotics
The 3D scanner is able to obtain highly accurate images of the foot using white light and digital camera technology, creating precise orthotic fabrication. Patients are given specialized socks to wear while being scanned in our office. Orthotic style is customized to the patient’s condition, activities, and type of footwear.
We use the Mettler Shockwave.
SWT noninvasively stimulates your musculoskeletal system and natural healing processes. In areas where you have injured soft tissue and pain, SWT can accelerate your natural healing and promote new tissue growth. At Town Center Foot & Ankle, we provide treatment using the Mettler Auto*Wave 695 technology.
The mechanical pressure and force generated during treatment increases the permeability of your cell membranes, improving your circulation and metabolism. SWT has a direct impact on your local nerve endings, reducing your overall levels of pain.
Calcific deposits can also be dissolved with this type of therapy.
Each treatment session lasts for around half an hour. After your treatment, you might see some light side effects, such as bruising, swelling, or numbness. With just a day or two of decreased activity following your treatment session, you should be completely recovered.
About Sudoscan Device
SUDOSCAN is a test that provides an accurate evaluation of sweat gland function. SUDOSCAN’s focus on small nerve fibers within the peripheral nervous system innervating the sweat glands. SUDOSCAN measures the ability of the sweat glands to release chloride ions in response to an electrochemical stimulus on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, areas with the highest sweat gland density.
SUDOSCAN test results can be used as indicators for patients at risk of autonomic dysfunction through the measurement of Electrochemical Sweat Conductance (ESC) and the amount of observed asymmetry between the right and left side.
SUDOSCAN has been tested for small fiber nerve neuropathies in several diseases and compared to guidelines reference tests: > Diabetes > Parkinson > Chemotherapy induced polyneuropathy > Familial amyloid polyneuropathy > Fabry disease
