Paul J. Kalin, DPM
Many podiatric conditions can be treated in our office under the care of our Podiatrist Paul J. Kalin, DPM and our exceptional staff. In some cases, surgery will be performed at a hospital. Foot conditions involving damage to underlying tissues are best treated with surgery. Conditions involving a change in the conformation of the foot or toes are also amenable to correction with surgery. Podiatrists are specially trained in the use of a variety of surgical techniques to address these problems, to minimize pain and to prevent the loss of function of any part of the foot. Podiatrists are also familiar with all available treatment options to determine when surgery is necessary, and when it can be avoided.
Take Aim at Toenail Fungus with FDA approved Laser Treatment…
Nail fungus that produces unsightly nails is one of the most common health issues faced by people, especially those who reside in hot, humid climate zones. Previous therapies for fungal nails including surgical excision, oral medication, and application of “over the counter” medication to the nails have produced varied results. Laser treatment kills the underlying pathogens that cause nail fungus.
Fungal infection of the toenail is also known as onychomycosis. Just like any other infection (bacterial or viral), it is important that the condition be treated so as not to lead to more serious
complications, especially in the diabetic. The disease is characterized by a change in nail color, thickening of the nail, debris under the toenail, a lifting of the leading edge of the nail, and a foul odor. Patients complain that toenail fungus is ugly, embarrassing, and sometimes painful. This condition is often ignored because the infection can be present for years without causing any pain, however, severe cases can impair one’s ability to walk or may lead to painful ingrown toenails. Secondary bacterial infections may also occur on or around the toenail plate
