Conditions Treated

Athlete’s Foot
A fungal infection that causes itching, burning, redness, peeling and sometimes blisters and sores. Athlete’s foot usually begins between toes and can spread to other toes, body parts and even other people.

A bony, often painful hump at the base of the big toe.

Corns and Calluses
Thick, hard, dead areas of skin usually found on pressure points of the foot.

Diabetic foot ulcers/wounds
Diabetic foot ulcers are red sores that occur most often on the pad (ball) of the foot or the bottom of the big toe. Ulcers can also form because of poorly fitted shoes, especially on the sides of the foot, the tops of the toes or the heel of the foot.

A form of arthritis that causes pain, redness, swelling and stiffness. Too much uric acid in your body forms needle-like crystals in the joints of your big toe, foot, ankle or even knee.

Hammer Toe
A deformity that causes your toe to bend or curl downward instead of pointing forward. This deformity can affect any toe on your foot.

Ingrown Toenail
A common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the soft flesh of the toe. The result is pain, redness, swelling and sometimes an infection. Ingrown toenails usually affect your big toe.

Pain in the foot, toes or ankle
This might include heel spurs or plantar fasciitis.

Toenail fungus
A fungal infection inside your toenail that makes the nail thick, discolored and brittle.

An infection of the outer layer of skin caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Plantar warts are most commonly found on feet and can spread to other areas of the body.
