Millions of Americans hold back from dipping their feet in the ocean, or showing off new summer sandals because of toenail fungus.
"It usually starts as an unsightly problem, sometimes it is almost invisible. Over the years, as the infection progresses, it worsens and become thicker," said Dr. Christopher Stewart, a podiatrist at Martha Jefferson Hospital.
Patients who have dealt with the unsightly and sometimes painful condition are beginning to turn to the NovoNail Restoration Center for answers. Stewart uses a patent-pending laser and surgical approach to erase toenail fungus. Unlike other medical offices, his attacks the root of the fungus problem which helps to ensure it will not return.
"It combines the best practices with my 15 years experience, to treat and refine treatments of this condition. It also combines new technologies," said Stewart. "Then we address the nail. We treat and cure the nail and then we educate the patients on how to prevent a re-occurrence."
Nearly two weeks ago, Stewart removed the toenails of Bonnie Tyler and John Sattick, then used a laser to get rid of the infection on the skin. Both were relieved to receive the treatment.
"The nails were so thick, I used sandpaper in order to reduce them," said John.
Doctor Stewart said that there is an answer for everyone forced to deal with toenail fungus. He is backing his NovoNail solution with a money back guarantee that he hopes will have everyone on their feet again.
