For the past 40 years, Dr. Edward Lazo has dedicated himself to the foot. A member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, the doctor of podiatry helms his own private practice, where he and his multilingual staff, fluent in English, Spanish, Armenian, and Russian, tend to patients of all ages. After consulting with clients, the doc maps out the best plan for treatment, from simple removal of ingrown toenails, corns, and calluses to surgeries to correct foot and ankle disorders. Perhaps his most popular treatment, however, is laser toe-fungus removal. A common problem caused by injuries, unsanitary nail salons, or barefoot romps through a mushroom patch, toenail fungus has previously been treated, often ineffectively, with oral and topical medications. Dr. Lazo, however, calls upon more advanced technology?the FDA-approved GenesisPlus system, which uses laser light to target, heat, and destroy fungus buried beneath the toenail, usually in just one 20- to 40-minute session.
