Snyder Stuart Podiatry Centers in Ellisville proudly offers Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT®). Currently, this method of treatment is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism; enhancing blood circulation which ultimately accelerates the healing process. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and then eventually heals.
The newly FDA approved laser safe and effectively treats for onychomycosis (toenail fungus) by directly targeting the fungus beneath the toenail while avoiding any damage to the surrounding nail and skin. The average laser procedure takes 10-20 minutes, is conducted in the SSPC office (typically on the initial visit), often takes only one treatment and requires no pain medication. It also allows the patient to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
The 20/20 Imaging’s hospital-grade, digital x-ray is an incredible enhancement to any podiatric practice. The benefits of digital radiography over film processing are substantial, both practically and economically. This cutting-edge technology is places Snyder Stuart Podiatry as the front runner in podiatric medicine with the utilization of the newest technology in diagnostic imaging. It allows our doctors to immediately show patients their x-ray. With their ability to closely zoom in on a specific part of the foot, our patients actually see more detailed information and are able to better understand the doctor’s diagnosis with the digital images.
