If you are having a painful problem with an ingrown toenail, you should visit us at New York Podiatry Care. Our top-notch podiatrist, Dr. Sarah Kim, will be able to provide you with treatment for your Rockville Centre ingrown nail.
When a person has an ingrown toenail it means that a toenail has grown into the surrounding nail fold. This can become very painful for the patient. More seriously, this can also cause a foot infection. If you have diabetes, this infection can become particularly problematic. This is because patients with diabetes often have reduced circulation in their feet and foot infections can be difficult to treat and may even spread to other parts of the body. When a patient has an ingrown toenail they will most likely have pain and swelling at the toe. Ingrown toenails also tend to reoccur in the same place. If you have a chronic ingrown toenail, this can often be permanently treated with a procedure that our podiatrist uses to treat chronic ingrown toenails. If you have a Rockville Centre ingrown nail that is causing you pain, we want you to know that there is no need to continue with this pain. Treatments for ingrown toenails are generally very easy, and can provide you with the complete pain relief that you are looking for. At our podiatry practice our podiatrist also treats many other different foot problems including: fungal toenails; wound care; diabetic foot care; treatment of bunions and hammertoes; cosmetic foot surgery; reconstructive foot surgery, treatment of ankle and foot fractures and sprains, and other sports medicine foot problems. At our podiatry practice our foot doctor also treats pediatric patients who are experiencing foot problems.
If you are experiencing pain with a Rockville Centre ingrown nail, we hope you will contact us for treatment so your feet can feel better soon!
