NorthPointe Introduces Laser Surgery
Beginning July 1st, NorthPointe Foot & Ankle will be offering laser surgery services! Our podiatrists are certified in laser surgery and know how much it can help foot and ankle conditions. Our laser can safely remove warts, ingrown toenails, deep-rooted calluses, infected toenails and other foot problems. Diabetic wound recovery is also much faster when using a laser. The laser leaves no scar after surgery and most times the treatment is completed in just one visit. If you have any questions call our Berkley, MI office or download and read our PDF on laser surgery. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Meet Molly Martin, RN, BSN, MHA! She is the technologist that will be helping with the laser.
UPDATE - Our Office Can Now Test for Circulation Problems! It's Quick and Painless!
Do you experience leg pain while walking or exercising? This could be a sign of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). The most common symptom of PAD is a painful muscle cramping in the hips, thighs or calves when walking, climbing stairs, or exercising. The pain of PAD usually goes away when you stop exercising, although this may take a few minutes.
NorthPointe is now home to the PADnet machine which provides a pain-free screening for PAD. The test is run in the office and the results are read by our own experts. The results are then confidentially transferred over the Internet to a group of cardiologists for their review.
PAD is treatable! Make an appointment today at NorthPointe to get screened for PAD. It only takes 15 - 20 minutes.
