Fed up with Fungal Nails?
Tried all the home treatments with little or no success?
Highly effective treatment is available with a combination of Nd-Yag high power laser and micro drill system.
There are a number of ways of treating fungal nails, most of them are fairly ineffective. A number of you will already have tried some of the many paints and solutions available from the pharmacies with little or no success. One of the other options is anti fungal tablets on prescription from your GP. These can work well, but come with some nasty side effects including possible liver function damage.
Here at Monmouth Podiatry we have 2 effective combination treatments with no side effects.
2 Treatment options available
Option 1. for mild to moderate infections
The infected part of the nails are reduced with a spray burr, this is completely pain free and not only removes the majority of the infection but improves the appearance of the nails. Next we use a Nd-Yag laser to kill the fungal spores that remain. Some clinics only use laser treatment for fungal nails, whilst there is some success with laser alone it is quite difficult to eradicate the infection solely with laser. Patients will also have an anti fungal solution to take and use at home. Follow up appointments are once every 2 months until resolved.
Option 2. For significant infections
When the fungal infection has affected the root area, the only option is to remove the nail using local anaesthetics, wash the root area out with an anti-fungal, then allow the nail to regrow afresh without the infection, this is a very successful procedure. See pictures below for previouly treated nails.

These pictures of patient Mr R, both toes were completely taken over down to the root with the fungal infection. The only option here was to do a nail removal with local anaesthetic and then wash out the root area with an anti fungal. Picture 1 before treatment, picture 2 five months after treatment, small toes take on average 4 to 5 months to fully regrow, big toes take 9 to 12 months to fully regrow.
