Healthy Happy Foot Care

Here to help you put your best foot forward, we offer foot care services to patients once a week at our Hibbing, Minnesota Office.

Callus Debridement
Calluses, also known as hyperkeratotic lesions, affect most of us. Often times they can lead to uncomfortable pressure points or even ulcerations in diabetic patients.

Debridement is the cutting or sanding away of the extra tissue from the top of the skin in order to eliminate the pressure that a callus causes. In order to avoid exposure of the patient's most sensitive skin, a small portion of the callus is always left.

Nail Trimming
Nail grooming is a simple yet important self-care routine. Short nails are less likely to harbor dirt and bacteria, which can lead to an infection. The correct nail clipping techniques can also help prevent common issues like hangnails and ingrown toenails.

Foot and Ankle Checks
The condition of your feet says a lot about your overall health and often alerts you or your doctor to signs of circulatory disorders, diabetes, arthritis or other diseases.

If any issues are found during your Healthy Happy Foot Care appointment, we can refer you to one of our orthopaedic surgeons for further care.
