Laser Eliminates Toenail Fungus

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, fungal infections cause about half of all nail disorders. They are more common in toenails because the toes often are confined to a warm, moist, weight-bearing environment.

Dr Robert Kaplan of Easton uses lasers to kill fungus while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The laser used in toenail fungus treatment doesn't affect surrounding tissue, so there is no pain, side effects, adverse reactions or complications. The FDA-approved treatment is an alternative to prescription medications and the in-office procedure is safe, effective and virtually painless with no downtime from your regular activities.

Dr. Robert Kaplan provides all types of foot and ankle solutions including Extra-Corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) an FDA approved non-invasive treatment for achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis, commonly associated with heel spurs.
