Patient care and health information

We want our patients to be informed about podiatric problems and treatments, because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well being. That is why we've included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry and podiatric diagnoses and treatments. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your feet.

We aim to:

  • Address important health issues impacting the patient
  • Research and develop sensible remedies to resolve patient concerns
  • Inform and educate patients about their concerns and provide choices

Maintaining a high level of medical competence and professional conduct is essential for good patient care. Good medical practice involves taking the steps to alleviate patient symptoms and distress.

Laser Treatment

No need to hide fungal-infected toes in closed shoes or hide behind layers of colored polish anymore beauties as there’s now a brand new, quick and easy, pain-free and clinically proven way to get rid of toenail fungus! It’s called the CUTERA Foot Laser, and it’s just hit our shores (it’s already a huge hit in the US and is bound to be one here too).

The CUTERA Foot Laser utilizes a laser beam that’s been specifically modified to treat toenail fungus – the laser light passes through the toenail, effectively killing the fungal spores, without causing pain or damage to the nail or surrounding skin,” says Rubin. “While the CUTERA Foot Laser won’t make toenail fungus instantly disappear, it does stop the infection so that the affected area can grow out without reoccurring. Plus the treatment takes a maximum of 30 minutes, and there’s absolutely no downtime – so you can literally step out of the podiatrist and head straight to your beautician for a pedicure right afterwards.

Tip #1

Inspect your feet: Start at the toenails. Look for signs of yellow, white or brown discoloration, black splinter-like streaks or any abnormal thickening. Look in between your toes for openings or cracks or white, moist tissue, which could be a sign of foot fungus.

Tip #2

Wash your feet regularly: Wash your feet each time you shower or take a bath, washing the bottom of your feet and in between your toes. It is also important to dry in between your toes after showering, especially if you have a tendency to develop foot fungus.

Tip #3

Trim your toenails straight across: Use a nail clipper made for toenails. If you do end up with sharp edges on the sides, it's ok to round a little at the edges to remove the sharp point. But, DO NOT trim down the sides of the nail. This is important because it can result in ingrown nails.

Tip #4

It’s so important to practice preventative care like the tips listed here, every day. If you notice anything that does not look normal please follow up with the South Texas Foot Institute (210) 928-FOOT (3668). Also, for ultimate foot health, make sure that your healthcare professional assesses your feet at every routine visit.
