Our clinic places importance on footcare and we are dedicated to the treatment and prevention of foot and toenail disorders. The purpose of our treatment is not only to "get rid of or alleviate pain," but also to "prevent foot problems before they become severe."
We offer advice on how you can prevent these problems in your daily life; for example, wearing the right shoes and taking care of your toenails. If you cannot cut your toenails by yourself due to age or paralysis, or if you have hyperonychia (nail tinea, pachyonychia, onychogryphosis), we will cut your nails for you at the clinic so please ask our staff.
<Major symptoms and treatment methods>
Pincer (ingrown) nail, acronyx, paronychia, nail deformity: taping, gutter, wire (not covered by insurance), artificial nail (not covered by insurance), etc...
Corns and calluses: removal of the thick and hardened areas of the skin, keratin softening cream (topical), etc...
Athlete's foot (skin, nail): topical and oral antifungal medication, laser treatment (not covered by insurance), etc...
・Artificial nail (Naorun: not covered by insurance)
We will first excise the ingrown nail that is causing the pain and put on an artificial nail made of a glass filler.
The pain will go away immediately, and there is no need to put on gauze, taping, or ointment.
・Wire treatment (not covered by insurance)
A treatment whereby a hyperelastic wire is attached to the nail, stretching out the ingrown nail.
Contrary to a surgery, it is possible to fix the nail without any bleeding.
