Breakthrough Laser Cure for Fungal Toenails A new procedure is now available for the treatment of fungal (mycotic) nails. This breakthrough technology was introduced at the American Podiatric Medical Association annual conference in Hawaii this past summer ('08). It is known as the inpulse pinpoint laser treatment. To date, it had been utilized by top podiatric surgeons in California, and now introduced to the Dallas - Ft. Worth area by Dr. Mojgan Tavakoli & Dr. Horst P. Knapp, board certified foot surgeons. Onychomycosis (fungus of the nail) is a chronic, progressive, debilitating disease of the nail, nail bed and matrix (root). Over the years dermatophytes (fungal elements) enter the nail bed from the skin. The traditional treatments of topical creams, lotions, etc, although somewhat effective, are difficult to use in chronic and progressive cases. The main stay of treatment has been oral medications. Lamisil (terbinafine) has been the most effective treatment recently in the eradication of onychomycosis with an approximately 70% cure rate; however, blood tests need to be taken due to the fact that there are side effects, especially with the liver. Cost is also a consideration as well. Treatment needs to be at least for three months and recurrence rate has been high. Often a second round of three months oral medicine is necessary. There are other medications including Diflucan, which is much too expensive and takes a year of treatment. Sporonox, another treatment, has a much lower effective rate and also is expensive. "To say we can now address this problem safely without medicines is nothing short of amazing."
