Overview

The specialists in the podiatric profession conduct continuous studies and collect data to enable treatment with the latest techniques and most up-to-date equipment. The ultimate objective is to relieve discomfort, and to correct the disabling effects of foot problems by the most efficient and effective means available.

Our goal at A Step Ahead Foot & Ankle Center is always to reduce treatment pain, avoid or minimize hospital confinement, and enable the patient to move about comfortably as soon as possible after surgery.

Laser beam surgery has been successfully used in the fields of ophthalmology, dermatology, gynecology, and now is being used in the treatment of various foot problems that require the removal of diseased or damaged tissues.

In many cases the scalpel is now being discarded in favor of a ray of light — the laser beam. In simple, non-technical terms, a laser beam of light is pinpointed on the troubled areas and in seconds (in some cases microseconds), the tissue is eliminated. The laser vaporizes the faulty cells, and at the same time sterilizes the adjacent tissue. Scarring is minimal because the laser’s precise control limits the damage to surrounding tissues.

We most frequently employ the laser to treat warts that are resistant to other treatment methods. The laser beam simply evaporates the diseased tissue of the wart. A variety of other conditions of the skin and soft tissue can be treated with this method as well.
