Family Podiatry Center is pleased to be one of the first podiatric centers in the country to offer a revolutionary NEW treatment for ingrown nails.
The nail plate rests on the nail bed. There are various conditions that interfere with the congruity of these two structures including onycholysis (lifting of the nail plate), infection, damage to the nail itself or buildup of debris between the two structures. Many painful toenails result from the nail plate being unable to comfortably rest on the nail bed causing a curved or ingrown nail.
Onyfix® Nail Correction system is a pain-free, non-surgical treatment of ingrown toe nails that corrects the nail through physiological growth with gentle support of the nail while allowing the nail bed to better accommodate the nail plate.
Onyfix is a device that is new to the United States but has been used for years elsewhere, including by the “ToeBro” in Canada. Onyfix reconstructs the nail plate while avoiding traditional reconstruction with removal of the nail either in part or in whole. With Onyfix, we finally have an option that allows you to retain your existing nail while correcting the deformity that is causing pain.
The application is performed in the office and there are absolutely no restrictions on activities following the application.
