Dear patients and visitors,
Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance
from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene,
infection control and medical professional team health. Our highest
priority is to keep all our patients and staff as safe as possible. Due to
Governor Tony Evers’ SAFER AT HOME orders, we will have limited
hours and staffing until the orders end on May 26 th or later if these
orders should be extended. We will only be seeing a limited number of
patients and only those where the appointment is necessary for their
immediate health and safety. We ask that anyone who enters our office
practices social distancing of 6 feet and covers their mouth and nose
when you cough or sneeze. Please STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK.
If you call our office and no one answers, please leave us a message.
Someone will be checking messages several times a day and will get
back to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding during
these trying times. We all need to work together to keep everyone in
our community safe and to minimize the risk to one another.
Bay Area Foot Clinic
Toenails will often become thick as an individual grows older. Thickening may also occur as a result of trauma to the toenail, such as when it repeatedly hits the end of a shoe that is too short. Sometimes when something is dropped on the toenail, the nail will fall off. When a new toenail grows back it will often be thicker than it was previously.
Thick toenails can also be seen in individuals with nail fungus (onychomycosis), psoriasis, and hypothyroidism. Those who have problems with the thickness of their toenails should consult a foot and ankle surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment.
