goodtoeFungus organisms that destroy toenails closely resemble the same organisms that are the cause of athletes’ foot. But the two problems are treated differently. At Hoosier Foot and Ankle, we’ve brought a laser treatment system to our patients.

Using the CoolBreeze CT3™, I can apply the cool laser treatments at the clinics so you don’t have to go anywhere else. The recovery time from a laser treatment is easy. Together we will work out a treatment process for your particular situation. If the fungus is more serious, we will plan the number of treatments, including professional debridement of the affected tissue. If there is anything you can do at home, including a foot soak or topical creams, we will work that out too. We might decide that you should avoid using nail polish for a few months till the fungus has been overcome. I know it is tempting to cover up the nails after toenail fungus has made them unattractive, but clean nails have a better recovery record.

We will plan follow-up checks to make sure the fungus doesn’t get a chance to get ahead again.

By setting appointments to get treatment started, you will have a better chance of getting ahead of the pain, itching and disfigurement brought on by toenail fungus before summer when sandals are popular or necessary. Multiple treatments may be necessary and the nails will have a chance to grow out in their state of recovery.

You can call 317-660-2115 for the appointment or you can use the online appointment request option available 24/7 for your convenience. We’ll team up against toenail fungus.
