Dr. Katz provides Comprehensive Medical Treatment for Toenail Fungus

So where do you begin if you want to have the laser treatment?Well, Dr. Katz, a board-certified podiatrist, has done much of theresearch for you! After conducting his own personal research over thepast number of years he chose the CoolTouch laser. There are a numberof lasers on the market and he chose the CT3 plus zoom 1320nm laserwhich allows for the most powerful, flexible and safest treatment.Other lasers that did not make the cut included Pinpointe, Noveon, KLaser, Palomar Lux, Aerolase, Fotona and other lasers that operate witha wavelength of 1064nm or have a double wavelength around the 800 and900nm range. Dr. Katz found these to have less power and affinity forthe nail tissue. Also, he felt these lasers did the not have theuser-control versatility he found in the CoolTouch laser. He felt therewere few safety features compared to the CoolTouch.

After using the CoolTouch, Dr. Katz planned to enhance the treatmentby altering the treatment protocol. He has adjusted the many lasersettings to take advantage of two methods of fungus damage and death.The first is by heating the nail, which is a common method used by manyother physicians. For his second step in furthering the success ratefor his patients, Dr. Katz researched methods of fungus destruction byaltering the genetics or DNA of the actual fungus. He optimized thelaser variables based on his studies, providing his patients twomethods of destruction and the best results.

Still not satisfied, Dr. Katz took the treatment even furtherproviding an even greater benefit to his patient. He developed his ownantifungal liquid formulation used during treatment which improved thelaser
