Office Procedures And Surgeries
- A common disorder that occurs when the edge of the toenail grows into the skin of the toe particularly on the big
(great) toe. The corner of the nail curves down into the skin, often due to improper trimming of the nail, or due to shoes that are too tight. This is a very simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. Only a very narrow portion of nail is removed and the root is cauterized with an acid to prevent re-growth.Wart Removal
- A wart is a painful skin growth caused by a viral infection. It can be removed very simply under local anesthesia. The wart is scooped out and cauterized to prevent recurrence.Diabetic Ulcer Care
- An ulcer is an open sore of the skin, often caused, but not exclusively, by an initial abrasion and generally maintained by an inflammation, an infection, and/or medical conditions which impede healing. Usually weekly wound care visits to scrape the dead tissue away to allow for growth of new healthy tissue.Laceration Repair
- A cut, tear, or ragged opening in the skin caused by an injury or trauma. Sometimes deep cuts can be sutured (sewn) in the office under local anesthesia.
