Integrative Spine and Sports is also a full-service podiatry office in Manhattan, NY.  Located on the Upper West Side, our integrative physical medicine practice includes a board-certified podiatrist on staff, Dr. Sanford Green, D.P.M.Busy New Yorkers spend a lot of time on their feet each day, and when feet hurt, it can impact a person’s life in negative ways.  For athletes, as well as individuals that simply like to be on the go, foot issues can do more than simply cause discomfort.  Problems with feet can result in chronic pain, difficulty walking, or the need to be sidelined from a favorite activity.  Even minor foot annoyances can put a damper in our step. Foot problems don’t have to stop you from doing the things you want to do.  Our podiatrist treats foot pain and injury to give you back the spring in your step.

Dr. Green, an experienced and caring podiatrist, understands that no one wants to be sidelined due to pain or injury in their feet.  He takes the time to throughly examine each patient, not only focusing on the exact point of pain or injury, but also looking at the patient’s entire medical history and activity types and levels to get to the root cause of foot problems.

Whether you have sustained an acute injury to your foot, are experiencing chronic foot pain, have noticed changes in the appearance of your feet, or would like to remove unsightly “additions” that plague your feet or toes, we can provide you with expert podiatric medical care offered in a caring, patient-focused environment.

Integrative Spine and Sports offers laser nail fungus removal in Manhattan, NY.

Laser nail fungus removal is a non-invasive, non-pharmalogical procedure used to treat nail fungus. The procedure is performed by our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Sanford Green, D.P.M., in our integrative physical medicine practice located on the Upper West Side of NYC. Laser nail fungus removal is designed to treat toenail fungus and to reduce nail thickness, improve appearance and make trimming of nails easier.

There’s no need to live with thick, ugly, discolored nails any more. Laser nail fungus treatments can improve the look of toenails painlessly, without the risk of potential side effects experienced with some medical treatments.

We perform laser treatment on affected nails using the FDA-approved Q-ClearTM laser, one of the most advanced dermatologic lasers currently available on the market. Using this advanced technology, impulses of high-powered laser energy are directed through the nail and into the nail bed and area of nail growth to treat the underlying fungus.

The painless procedure takes only a few minutes to complete and results in no damage to the nail being treated or the surrounding skin. For patients with very thick nails, the nail is first mechanically reduced with specialized equipment before the laser treatment is initiated to make the treatment more effective.

Once laser treatment has been performed on the nail, normal activities can be resumed right away. There will be no visible change to the nail immediately following treatment, however as the nail begins to grow out, a more normal-looking, healthier nail is expected to appear. It generally takes between 9 – 12 months for a new nail to grow out completely. Most nails should improve following just one treatment, although we provide a second treatment (two months after the initial treatment) for no additional cost.

Laser nail fungus removal is a cosmetic procedure and is not considered to be “medically necessary” by most health insurance providers.
