  • IL PODIATRIST STATES THAT MOST INGROWN TOENAILS THE RESULT OF "BATHROOM SURGERY"

 

IT IS ESTIMATED THAT MORE THAN 7 MILLION AMERICANS SUFFER FROM INGROWN TOENAIL EACH YEAR.  THIS WOULD MEAN THAT OVER 700,OOO CANADIANS WOULD ALSO SUFFER THIS PAINFUL AFFLICTION EACH YEAR.  MOST PATIENTS WITH THIS CONDITION SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP QUICKLY DUE TO THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN.  

PODIATRIST, DR. JOHN SIGLE STATES, " MOST PATIENTS WHO HAVE ACQUIRED THIS CONDITION TOOK IT UPON THEMSELVES TO PERFORM 'BATHROOM SURGERY'.  SOME PATIENTS ATTEMPT TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM BY DIGGING UNDER THE TOENAIL WITH SHARP MANICURE SCISSORS OR RAZOR BLADE.  SOME USE A NEEDLE FROM THE SEWING BOX TO DRAIN THE PUS.  OTHERS USE PLIERS TO REMOVE THE NAIL.  WHEN ASKED WHY THEY WAITED SO LONG TO GET TREATMENT THEIR TYPICAL RESPONSE IS, 'I WAS SCARED TO DEATH TO HAVE MY TOENAIL REMOVED."

MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC HAS INCORPORATED THE LATEST ADVANCE IN TOENAIL SURGERY BY USING A COMPUTERIZED PAINLESS INJECTION SYSTEM CALLED THE WAND.  IT WAS ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED FOR THE DENTAL PROFESSION BUT WORKS EQUALLY WELL IN TOENAIL SURGERY.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED WITH THE LATEST SURGICAL TECHNIQUES IN TOENAIL SURGERY, PLEASE CONTACT MY FOOT CLINIC.
