servicesWest LA Hand Center is a multifaceted facility that offers many modalities of treatment. Each client will be educated about their condition, possible causes, and the reasoning behind the plan for treatment.  Many aspects of treatment can be carried out right here in our office. However, when it is necessary to refer out, we have an extensive network of professionals who pride themselves in customer care as much as we do.

Treatment

It is a common misconception that a Hand Surgeon would only see patients who may be in need of surgery.  While Dr. Freedman is a highly skilled surgeon, the fact is that many of our patients will never see him in an operating room.  At West LA Hand Center, we see patients with many lower extremity issues.

PinPointe Nail Fungus Laser Treatment

The patented PinPointe Laser is specially designed to penetrate the nail, skin and soft tissue, killing the fungus in the nail bed that causes onychomycosis which leads to unsightly nail appearance.

The procedure typically requires one to two treatments with little or no discomfort and is performed in our office with no anesthetic being necessary. The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue and treats only the infected area of the fingers. This eliminates the need for oral antifungal medications, which have demonstrated potential side effects, including liver damage.

Tenex Health TX

Did you know that over 10 million people in the United States suffer from tendon injuries every year? These injuries are associated with chronic pain and losing the ability to perform simple daily activities.

The innovative Tenex Health TX—medically known as percutaneous tenotomy or percutaneous fasciotomy—is based on advanced technology developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic. Tenex Health TX is minimally invasive and designed to break down and remove damaged tendon tissue quickly and safely, without disturbing the surrounding healthy tendon tissue.

During the procedure, your doctor will use sophisticated ultrasound imaging to identify the specific location of the damaged tendon tissue.

Once the treatment area is located, a small MicroTip™ is inserted. The MicroTip delivers ultrasonic energy specifically designed to break down and remove damaged tissue safely and quickly, without disturbing the surrounding healthy tendon tissue.

When the procedure is completed, only a small adhesive bandage is used, and no sutures or stitches are needed.
