Baltimore's Mark E. Spier, DPM, Announces FDA Clearance of PinPointe™ FootLaser™ for Treatment of Nail Fungus
Date:10/26/2010

BALTIMORE, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The podiatry practice of Mark E. Spier, DPM, announced today that the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis). Dr. Spier is the first certified provider of the treatment in the Baltimore area.

"Toenail fungus, a condition that affects more than 35 million Americans, is both easily spread and exceptionally durable, often standing up against the most aggressive antifungal pills," said Dr. Spier. "With FDA clearance of the PinPointe FootLaser, patients have a relatively painless, important new treatment option. It is often more successful than topically applied antifungal drugs, has less side effects than oral medication, and is less painful than surgical removal of the nail."

Fungal nail infection is caused by fungus under the nail.  As they grow, fungi feed on keratin, the tough protein that makes up the hard surface of the nails. The nail becomes darker in color and debris may accumulate under the nail. Nail infection can cause nails to be discolored, thickened, brittle, and 'crumbly' and in some people it can interfere with wearing shoes and/or cause pain when walking.

The treatment of nail infection is difficult because the infection is under and inside of the nail, making it hard for any treatment to reach and destroy the infection.  Some people are treated with medicated nail polish or oral medications, which can be associated with side effects and serious drug interactions. Another option is to surgically remove the nail.
