PinPointe FootLaser is the first and currently the only laser to receive a clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat the symptoms of patients suffering from onychomycosis. The Orthopedic Foot, Ankle and Knee Institute is the only orthopedic surgery practice in the Allentown, Lehigh Valley area to offer this clincally proven treatment. We have been designated a "Reference Center" to promote and teach this technology to other health care providers.
Fungal nail infection is estimated to affect more than 10% of the U.S. population, or 35 million Americans. Given the number of patients who suffer from nail fungus nationwide, we believe that you will be interested in receiving treatments with the PinPointe FootLaser.
The PinPointe FootLaser is designed specifically to meet the needs of the orthopedic community. PinPointe FootLaser typically requires a 30-minute treatment performed in the comfort and privacy of our office.
Nail fungus is an embarrassing chronic condition that impacts a person's quality of life and can lead to serious health problems for patients with diabetes or immune disorders. The treatment of nail infection is difficult because the infection is under and inside of the nail, which makes it hard for other treatments to reach and destroy the infection. Treatments such as medicated nail polish or oral medications may be associated with side effects or serious drug interactions. Home remedies such as bleach, vinegar, mouthwash or household cleaners to resolve the problem are often tried but, ultimately, fail to resolve it.

For these reasons, we believe that a breakthrough treatment with the PinPointe FootLaser provides new hope for you. In fact, after a single treatment, between 68% and 81% of the patients experienced an increase in clear nail at 6 and 12 months, and 81% of all patients saw sustained improvement at 12 months.
