Bay Area Foot & Laser Podiatry Group Opens in Marin; Expands Use of Breakthrough Cosmetic Laser to Third Bay Area Location

MARIN, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - The Bay Area Foot & Laser Podiatry Group will expand into Marin with a new office opening on October 15 it was announced today by Dr. Mark Wolpa. In private practice in the Bay Area since 1977, Dr. Wolpa also has offices in Walnut Creek and Berkeley, CA. Dr. Wolpa was one of the first doctors in the U.S. to use The PinPointe FootLaser for the treatment of toenail fungus. Toenail fungus is a condition that affects an estimated 40 million Americans. Dr. Wolpa has performed more than 350 successful treatments for the disease since February 2009, making it the single most requested and popular procedure among new and existing patients in his practice. Patients in the Marin Area can contact the Marin office now at 415.925.1111 for a free consultation about The PinPointe FootLaser procedure or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Wolpa.

It is estimated that half of all Americans over 40 suffer from toenail fungus. Despite this statistic, there has never been a good treatment option prior to the release of The PinPointe FootLaser.

"Topical treatments don't work and oral antifungal treatments must be taken three months and carry a risk of side effects," he said. "The PinPointe FootLaser beam quickly, safely and effectively penetrates the nail bed and vaporizes the fungus instantly."

The PinPointe FootLaser procedure takes about 30 minutes and produces a clear, healthy nail in about ten months. Dr. Wolpa adds, "Laser treatment of toenail fungus now will yield fungus free toes by next summer."
