Orlando laser foot surgery uses a surgical laser beam which can cut or vaporize tissue almost instantaneously. It is so precise that the surrounding tissue is hardly affected. The beam, which is a man-made light amplification, sterilizes and seals blood vessels as it cuts, so there’s generally less bleeding, less post-operative pain, and less chance of postoperative infection than with conventional surgical instruments. The laser has been used for other medical treatments, but in podiatry, it is becoming popular. Depending on the nature of your problem, your doctor will probably numb the area with a local anesthetic before using the Laser. Dr. Cowin uses laser to treat fungal nails, warts, ingrown toenails, neuromas, and porokeratosis which are slightly elevated, wart-like lesions that originate in the sweat glands and are often painful.
