$599 for Three Laser Toenail-Fungus-Removal Treatments ($1,300 Value)
Each laser toenail-fungus-removal session typically takes around 20 minutes to treat both feet. Focused laser-light energy targets fungus as well as the underlying contamination in the nail bed, using heat to kill the infection without damaging any of the surrounding tissues. The treatment reportedly causes a gentle warming sensation on the skin and nail.
Most patients will only require three monthly treatments. Dr. Splettstoesser provides complimentary bottles of topical medication and antimicrobial spray that help prevent re-infection. A healthy, fungus-free nail will then proceed to grow back, usually after 12 months.
James W. Splettstoesser, D.P.M.
Dr. James Splettstoesser partially owes his education to his feet. Football and baseball scholarships brought him to South Dakota State University, where he completed his premed studies. As a result of his athletic activities, Dr. Splettstoesser suffered a spate of foot and ankle injuries, leading him to recognize the importance of proper podiatric care. He began studying podiatry, eventually establishing a private practice in Santa Barbara, where there was high demand due to residents having as many as two feet.
For more than 36 years, Dr. Splettstoesser has privately treated podiatric patients with cosmetic and medical concerns. He addresses arch problems, analyzes painful conditions, and even helps heal the same sports injuries he used to suffer. In addition to treating everything from skin to soft-tissue conditions, Dr. Splettstoesser eradicates unsightly—and occasionally painful—toenail fungus with laser-light treatments.
