Welcome to the South Texas Foot Institute and Foot Spa!
Our patients have access to state-of-the-art treatment center. Innovations in podiatric surgery in recent years have made it far more effective and inviting than it has been in the past. Surgery is often the best choice to fix conditions like bunions, melanomas, hammertoes, neuromas and tendon problems. Recent innovations have improved podiatrists' ability to diagnose, treat and perform surgery on foot and ankle conditions.

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.
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.
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.
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!”
