Fungal toenails may appear thick, hard, and yellowed. Most patients come in because the toenails become unsightly and difficult to cut. Rest assured that toenail fungus is very common in people of all ages. With a little time and patience, toenail fungus is also very treatable.

Symptoms

  • Thick, yellow toenails
  • White discoloration of the toenails
  • Hard, brittle nails
  • Elevation and pain to the top of the nail

Treatment Options

  • A topical cream that is specially formulated to penetrate through the nail (whereas most anti-fungal creams are designed for skin)
  • An oral anti-fungal pill
  • Laser treatment (not offered at our office)

Please don't hide your feet in close toed shoes out of embarassment any longer. Come in to see us so that we can discuss which treatment option might be right for you!

Bunions, or pain to the side of the big toe joint,  are hereditary in nature. The pain and deformity can be made worse by tight shoes, but shoe choice is not the cause of the deformity. Bunions are caused by a malalignment of the foot bones.

Symptoms

  • Pain to the side of the big toe joint
  • Redness and swelling to the big toe joint
  • Big toe that is drifting towards the 2nd toe

Treatment May Include

  • Initial x-rays to determine the severity of the deformity
  • Conservative options include proper arch support, wider shoes, and anti-inflammatories
  • Surgery to correct the position of the bones

If your bunion is affecting your lifestyle/daily activities please come see us. There are a variety of options to help with the pain that may or may not include surgery. Also, if surgery is required, most patients will be walking on their foot a few days after the procedure. There is no reason to continue suffering through the pain.
