  • Ingrown toenail surgery
  • Bunion surgery
  • Hammer toes surgery
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery
  • Corn and callus removal


Pain & Injury

  • Skin disease treatment


Diabetic Foot Care

  • Diabetic wound care
  • Diabetic nail care


What does a podiatrist do for an ingrown toenail?

For the ingrown nail surgery, the podiatrist will begin by numbing the toe and then will drain the inflamed area. Typically, the foot doctor will give you the option to remove just a sliver of the nail with the root (which is more aesthetically pleasing) or to remove the whole toenail, since some patients prefer not to have to bother with their nail anymore.

There’s no need to worry! An ingrown toenail procedure is a minor surgery, which takes very little time and can often be performed right at the podiatrist’s office instead of a hospital. 

After the ingrown toenail surgery in Baltimore, you’ll need to wear open-toed or loose fitting shoes and stay off your feet for a day or two. You’ll also need to change your bandage on a regular basis until the area has completely healed.


How does a podiatrist remove a callus?

A podiatrist removes a callus by carefully using a surgical blade or dremel-like tool that functions like a hand-held sanding machine. This treatment can tickle a bit especially if the podiatrist is removing calluses from the bottom of your foot, but if you’re not ticklish then this is an overall enjoyable treatment.

When completed, the result from this callus removal is quite phenomenal. Our podiatrists in Baltimore make your feet feel smooth and brand new! 


How much do orthotics cost from a podiatrist?

The price for custom supports or orthotics can vary from $400 to $800 depending on the quality of material used.

Our podiatrists in Baltimore and the surrounding areas can cast your feet for custom orthotics that will significantly improve the support for your feet, especially if you suffer from a flat foot condition or low arch.
