Podiatry Management, April 2012
Laser therapy is not new to podiatry, but new technology is providing versatility and power that brings this type of therapy to a new level. Patients are increasingly attuned to the availability and popularity of laser treatments in general, and I have found it increasingly easy to attract patients for laser therapy. When I do, I always review oral, topical and laser treatment options with them in terms of risk and benefits, and the laser option fills a niche for an astounding number of patients that do not want pharmaceuticals or have failed oral and topical treatments in the past.
