  • Broken toe?

    Check to make sure that the toes look well-aligned, make sure they are as warm as the other side, not turning white, and have full sensation. If all of that seems ok, use some thin, preferably silk tape to buddy splint the injured toes to the adjacent 3rd toe. An x-ray at urgent care, orthopedist, or podiatrist can confirm or rule out a fracture. Poorly aligned toes should be reduced and stabilized. Fracture healing takes 6-8 weeks. READ MORE

  • What anesthesia is used for ingrown toenail surgery?

    Hi, I usually do this procedure in the office with local anesthesia. That means you are fully awake and the toe gets a (temporarily very painful) injection. Once the injection is in, the removal is painless and you are able to walk out in normal shoes. Infrequently, patients ask for light sedation in an operating room. READ MORE

  • Foot infections?

    My initial reaction is that you have a clear and significant case of plantar verrucae (warts). It’s difficult to say for sure without a closer look, or maybe even a biopsy. There are lots of treatment options, but I prefer 5-FU (prescription flouorouricil) under 40% Salicylic Acid occlusion with weekly debridement with a scalpel at your local dermatologist’s or podiatrist’s office. When they are that large, you may ultimately need to have them removed with a laser, which is an outpatient surgical procedure. READ MORE

  • Injured foot?

    Hi, a Jones fracture typically occurs from a twisting foot or ankle injury. On an x-ray it can look a lot like a 5th metatarsal stress fracture, which could theoretically develop from wearing a hard and or tight dress shoe for a long time. READ MORE
