Laser podiatry procedures are cutting-edge methods of treatment that use laser wavelengths and mechanical pressure waves to promote healing noninvasively. At Fit Feet Podiatry, Dr. Stepensky offers two different types of laser procedures:
The Zimmer enPulsPro uses mechanical energy to trigger reactions in your soft tissue that have a positive effect on a wide range of orthopedic conditions. You might benefit from treatment with the Zimmer enPulsPro if you’re suffering from chronic inflammation or tendon problems such as plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis.
Zimmer enPulsPro typically requires a series of four, five-minute treatment sessions spaced one week apart. The treatment boasts an 80-85% success rate and requires no downtime. Following treatment, you can return to your normal routine right away.
Fotona laser podiatry uses two specific types of laser wavelengths, Nd:YAG and Er:YAG, to treat a wide array of podiatric problems, including onychomycosis (toenail fungus), plantar warts, leg veins, corns, and calluses.
Fotona laser podiatry offers a highly versatile parameter selection, allowing Dr. Stepensky to tailor a custom treatment plan based on your individual needs. In addition, the treatment is extremely precise, requires no anesthesia, and presents no post-treatment pain.
No two people are exactly alike. Therefore, Dr. Stepensky develops custom plans for every patient. To determine the laser procedure you’ll most benefit from, Dr. Stepensky physically examines your feet, toes, and ankles, reviews your medical history, and asks you a series of questions about the symptoms you’re experiencing.
If necessary, Dr. Stepensky might also take a series of X-rays to get a better look at the bones and underlying structures in your feet. After gathering all of this information, he formulates a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and concerns.
No. The laser procedures that Dr. Stepensky offers are FDA-approved, safe, and well-tolerated. In addition, there’s no need for topical or injected anesthetics. Both the Zimmer enPulsPro and Fotona lasers are entirely noninvasive and pain-free. After your treatment session is over, you can return to work and other normal activities right away.
