Nails

Nail Fungus
Nail fungus affects roughly 3% of all Americans and the incidence increases with age.  Not only is it an important health issue but it can often be very embarassing for many patients.  There are several treatment options for nail fungus including regular medical nail debridement, topical medications, oral medications, and the newest and most promising treatment, laser treatment.  Our podiatrist will discuss all of these treatment options with you so that you may make an informed decision about which one is right for you.

Ingrown Toenails
Ingrown toenails are a very common and often extremely painful problem.  Treatment should be obtained as soon as possible to prevent potentially dangerous infections.  Dr. Ewen will explain the different treatment options including pros, cons, risks and benefits of each so that you may make a well-informed decision.  If this problem is chronic, she may recommend permanent removal of the nail edge.   This is a very safe and highly effective treatment; patients leave the office pain-free and problem solved, and ready to return to your regular activities the next day.

Thickened, discolored nails
Nails can become thickened, malformed, discolored for various reasons.  We will examine the nails to determine the cause of the abnormalities and then suggest treatment options.
