This is a question we receive often at our practice. As patients age, they may have trouble cutting their toenails, and naturally turn to their podiatrist for help. There are certain conditions that make it dangerous for you to cut your own toenails, such as diabetes with neuropathy, or severe circulation problems. If you have difficulty cutting your toenails, please visit our office and we will examine you and decide if you qualify as an at-risk patient. If not, we will do everything we can to develop a plan so that you, or your geriatric family member, can maintain healthy, happy feet.
