Choosing the right foot and ankle doctor is very important when you require any type of treatment. If you would like to receive care from a trained Washington DC foot surgeon who is invested in your medical care, turn to DC Laser Nail Center & Heel Pain Center.

Q: What type of foot or ankle problems can you help me with?
A: Whether you are in need of surgery or an effective solution for laser nail fungus, we can help. We offer an assortment of effective treatment options designed to help improve your condition and quality of life.

Q: What should I do if I have developed fungus on my nails?
A: If you have developed nail or toenail fungus which has not gone away, you will need to seek a more effective form of treatment from a trained professional. At our office, we can rid you of painful and uncomfortable nail fungus.

Q: How does your laser nail fungus treatment work?
A: This treatment method uses a near-infrared laser which uses photo-inactivation to treat the fungal cells which are in the nail bed. It does not touch the healthy cells which are nearby. It takes about 15 minutes for each treatment session.

Q: Can your shockwave therapy help with my constant heel pain?
A: Yes. Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal lithotripsy can be used to treat heel pain. It can be applied without medication and uses the body's own healing processes to repair injured tissue.

Q: If I have diabetes, can you help me with my foot and ankle care?
A: Yes, we can help you with diabetes-related foot and ankle problems - like blisters, corns, ingrown toenails, bunions, athlete's foot, and hammertoes. It is important that you don’t ignore any potential problems even if they don’t seem serious.
