Thick 2nd toenail

Patient presented to the office complaining of a thick toe nail, happened to be the second toe. She though it might be fungus. Actually, it turns out that she has the common “problem” we have been talking. After further evaluation and xray, it turns out she has constant pain in the ball of her foot and a painful bunion. As we suspected, the lab confirmed there was no fungus in the nail. The problem was the that the toe was too long and had constant pressure at the tip, causing a thick, unsightly and painful nail. We fixed the bunion, the toe, and the callus on the bottom of her foot. New nail should grow within the next couple of months…
