Ardmore and Paoli, Pennsylvania (Vocus) May 4, 2010 -- Doctors Eric Ricefield and Mark Yagodich – podiatrists at Your Next Step in Ardmore and Paoli, Pennsylvania – excitedly announce that, with their new PinPointe FootLaser, they have now successfully treated over 450 patients that suffer from toenail fungus. Ricefield and Yagodich began using this new technology in June of 2009 and now hold exclusive rights to the PinPointe FootLaser in eastern Pennsylvania.
Developed in California in September of 2008, the PinPointe FootLaser is nothing short of a breakthrough in toenail fungus treatment of onychomycosis – commonly known as toenail fungus. Research shows that this new technology – which vaporizes fungal spores embedded in the nail bed – successfully treats fungus in roughly 70% percent of patients with a one-time, 30-minute procedure free of side-effects. Oral antifungals are only 60 to 70 percent effective and must be taken daily for months, while topical creams and sprays work a mere eight to twelve percent of the time. Thus, the PinPointe FootLaser has truly revolutionized the field of toenail fungus removal. Your next step has been waiting for an answer like this to treat toenail fungus and it is finally here.
After the procedure, patients typically don’t know the success rate of the treatment for around six to nine months – the length of time it takes for toenails to grow back. Since Ricefield and Yagodich began using the PinPointe FootLaser last summer, they are now seeing the successful impact that their new technology is making. It is no longer a brand new technology and is proving itself over and over again in the pursuit to treat toenail fungus. In this regard, Dr. Yagodich says, “The laser is a proven technology with the highest long-term efficacy rate.” And though the PinPointe FootLaser has yet to be approved by the FDA, Ricefield remains confident: “Just look at all of the things that are done routinely now. Lasik eye surgery, for example. It still isn’t approved.”
