Fungus Toe Nail

Patricia is a patient of San Diego foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Jay Berenter. She visits his office for laser toenail treatment.

She likes the support staff and finds the office is right up to date with the latest technology. Patricia also likes to refer her own patients who are experiencing toenail fungus to Dr. Berenter’s office for treatment using the Cool Laser.

Toenail fungus is an infection which can make your toenail change color or get thicker. Because toes are often warm and damp, fungus can grow well there. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other toenails, skin and even fingernails.

Toe infection’s & Diabetes

Jesse is a patient of foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Jay Berenter in San Diego, CA. Recommendations from friends in the La Jolla area are what led Jesse to initially contact Dr. Berenter.

Jesee now visits Dr. Berenter for laser treatment on his foot following the removal of a toe. He explains that the treatment is designed to help the healing process. Jesse calls the treatment at Dr. Berenter’s La Jolla office “nothing but amazing”. As someone who worked in clinical research for 12 years, he refers his own physician friends to Dr. Berenter.

His advise to others experiencing foot problems: “It’s a bad idea to wait. I waited about 5 months before seeing Dr. Berenter. Luckily, he was able to save my foot…I don’t have a toe because I waited too long. Dr. Berenter would be a logical choice for any patient.”

Laser Foot Treatment

Dr. Berenter’s patient Edith from San Diego is having laser treatment for a neuroma on the bottom of her foot. Edith has been seeing Dr. Berenter since having surgery done on one of her toes. Her husband Bill started coming to Dr. Berenter’s office at Scripps Memorial Hospital / Ximed over 7 years ago.

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, the vast majority of people who develop neuromas are women. It is a painful condition, and is sometimes called a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. In addition to pain, patients describe their symptoms as a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.
