If you have noticed a white or yellow spot underneath any of your toenails, you may be developing what is known as a fungal infection. After this beginning stage, the infection tends to spread deeper and deeper into the nail and can cause embarrassing, and sometimes painful, side effects. Your toenail will begin to thicken and discover, and may start to crumble on the end. Aside from it being unpleasant to look at and possibly painful, these fungal infections can later lead to blood infections if they are not treated. That is why it is important to visit Linden Hill podiatrist Dr. Gary B. Feldman at the first sign of a fungal infection.
One of our most effective treatments for this common problem is laser surgery. This treatment is a very minor surgery, and using advancements in medical technology combined with the expertise of our Linden Hill podiatrist and his team of staff, we can easily eliminate the fungus that has infected your toenail. We have seen outstanding results from this treatment with a number of our patients, and it is one of the best options for treating fungal infections under the nail.
