Ingrown Nails - Ingrown toenails are caused by the growth of the toenail into the surrounding nail fold and are usually related to the big toes and tight shoes. Symptoms include pain, swelling and infection. Chronic, painful ingrown toenails can usually be permanently cured with a simple office procedure that prevents the regrowth of the ingrown portion of the nail.
“Ugly” Fungal Toenails - Dr Shavelson has published articles on Fungal Toenails. He is a consultant to pharmaceutical and laser companies working with Ugly Toenails. He has one of the busiest and most successful programs in New York City that is known for its fair pricing. These infections often start out as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your big toenail. Over time deeper these opportunistic plants spread deeper and to other toes if they are not treated and killed. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges, an unsightly and potentially painful problem.
Diabetic Foot Care - Dr Shavelson spent seven years in The Department of Endocrinology of New York Presbyterian Hospital paying special attention to the feet of diabetics. He specializes in improving feeling, performance and wound prevention in these potentially disabling and weak feet.
Bunions, Hammertoes, Corns and Calluses are very common conditions. These can often be cured utilizing Minimally Invasive Procedures.
