Ingrown Toenail


Adler Podiatry Clinic specializes in treating younger patients with ingrown toenails. Serious infections can result if the ingrown toenail remains untreated.

Our goal is to minimize the patient's anxiety while effectively treating the problem. It's not uncommon for parents, after seeing how well their child tolerates the procedure, schedule an appointment to have their ingrown toenail treated.

The following video demonstrates the technique for permanent treatment of an Ingrown Toenail. The procedure is painless and very effective.

Warts - Verruca Plantaris


A warts or verruca plantaris is caused by a virus which grows in the upper layer of the skin. They are more common in children than adults. Like all viruses they can be contagious. On the bottom of the foot plantar warts are painful with pressure. The classic appearance of a plantar wart is pinpoint capillary hemorrhages, black dots which bleed when shaved. Treatment can include application of chemicals, freezing, surgery and medications to stimulate the body's immune system.

Morton's Neuroma

Morton's Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a thickening of the digital nerve in the ball of the foot. The nerve is irritated by the bones (metatarsals) behind the toes. Tight shoes pinch the nerve causing pain. Removing the shoe and massaging the foot helps relieve the pain. As the nerve enlarges the frequency and severity of pain increase.

Hallux Valgus - Bunions

Hallux Valgus

Hallux Valgus or Bunion Deformity occurs when the big toe dislocates or moves toward the second toe. The bone behind the great toe bulges out and shoe pressure against the enlarged bone can cause pain. Custom Orthotics can help prevent bunions. When pain occurs with all shoes, surgery to remove the enlarged bone and straighten the great toe is often required to treat the bunion deformity.


Hammertoe with Corn

Many foot deformities i.e. Hammertoes and Claw toes are aggravated by shoes, exercise and weight gain. The shoe rubs the top of the Hammertoe causing irritation and pain. Claw toes develop irritation at the end of the toe. If you or a member of your family are prone to foot problems, contact us today for a complete foot evaluation.

Varicose Veins

Venous Stasis Ulcer

A Venous Sonogram is an in-office, non-invasive, painless procedure indicated for patients with symptomatic varicose veins or Chronic Venous Insufficiency. The exam is used to determine the severity and location of the problem and the best course of action.

Over time chronic venous insufficiency can cause swelling, redness, pain and clots (phlebitis). The skin in the leg above the enlarged vein becomes discolored, swollen and painful. The discoloration is caused by red blood cells leaking from the enlarged veins. The red blood cells release iron which stains and irritates the skin which breaks down forming a venous ulcer.

The most common site for a venous ulcer is on the inside of the ankle. Venous ulcers are usually treated in the office with application of special bandages, allographs and possibly venous ablation. Venous ablation is a safe and effective procedure designed to "close" the surface veins. Under ultrasound guidance the procedure is performed in the office. Follwoing the procedure most venous ulcers heal and patients can quickly resume their normal life style.
