Ingrown Toenail Treatment

Ingrown toenails are due to the penetration of the edges of the nail plate into the soft tissue of the toe. It begins with a painful irritation that often becomes infected. With bacterial invasion, the nail margin becomes red and swollen often demonstrating drainage or pus.

Treatment for ingrown toenails is relatively painless.

Dr. Steven Carter performs thorough examinations and discusses treatment options with his patients in easy to understand language. We perform office procedures including treatment of ingrown toenails, warts, biopsies, etc. Outpatient procedures are performed in ambulatory surgical centers and range from minor procedures to more complex reconstructive foot procedures.

In-Office Custom Molded Foot Orthotics

A prescription foot orthosis is an in-shoe device which is designed to correct abnormal foot and lower extremity function.

Podiatrists prescribe two main types of prescription foot orthoses for their patients, accommodative orthoses and functional foot orthoses. Both types of prescription foot orthoses are used to correct the foot function of the patient so that the pain in their foot or lower extremity will improve so that normal activities can be resumed without pain.
