Bunions

Bunions: before and afterBunions are misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes.

Bunion surgery is virtually pain free, using advanced pain pump technology. Patients can walk right away after the procedure. Bunion surgery is an out-patient surgery, so the patients have the procedure done and go home an hour after surgery.

Fungus Toenails *New Laser Treatment Available

 

 

Nail fungus, or onychomycosis, is prevalent worldwide and up until now, has had very limited, ineffective, and undesirable treatment options. These options include topical antifung

al creams that cannot penetrate the nail adequately to completely eradicate fungus, oral antifungals that are hepatotoxic, or permanent removal of the nail.

Now Orange County Foot & Ankle Group has a new technology, called ClearSense that safely treats onychomycosis by heating the nail and the nail bed with laser energy. The result is a decrease of nail fungus, and temporary increase in the growth of clear nails. 

A typical treatment for all ten toes is 15-20 minutes, and normal activity can resume immediately following treatment. Our surgeons have our patient’s maximum comfort and safety in mind, while ensuring maximum efficiency and treatment success. The laser has been FDA cleared for treatment in patients with onychomycosis.
