CUTTING INSANELY LONG TOENAILS! | Healthy Feet Podiatry, Tampa, Wesley Chapel & Brooksville, Florida



do you let me know okay I treat every patient like family I like and then this stuff is uh just calluses that are in between because it's just hard to get them between those toes and keep those areas clean and dry it's not easy that's why family is really important so I'm trying to convince this gentleman to move to Michigan so that you can have family around right except why move to Michigan if you live in Tampa that doesn't very me that doesn't make very much sense right it's counterintuitive right I know I know we're in Michigan did you live okay what city Oh that's why you said that okay there we go so you've had the wine at Traverse City then right well you've had the wine at Traverse City it's excellent I did not know they had wineries in Michigan or vineyards but there's like twelve of them I know it's nuts I went there last summer and we stopped at six of them after six I couldn't handle it so we stopped look it's beautiful up there waters clean air is clean we go blueberry picking every year because in July that's the season for blueberry picking Michigan's the first place I saw cougar I don't mean the I don't mean that type of cooker well like I'm a real cougar like good for the animal quickly but it's true we saw it like you know it looked funny because it was galloping like you know like like a cat you know moving its front like a cheetah and I saw it and my dad saw it too so it was interesting to say the least Oh seven okay this gentleman's gonna feel much better after this because obviously you can't walk around with these things were you wearing shoes ever could you fit your feet and shoes sure sure that makes sense and then you're home most of the time right okay so you've been in Tampa a while right a few years what's your favorite restaurant I mean it doesn't have to be from now but like 20 30 years ago was your favorite restaurant or anytime I don't care where's that oh oh it doesn't exist anymore right is that the seafood place that was right on the did they close it down or no oh I gotta whip that up you know hmm I got a Google that Gasparilla is coming up I have not been the gas portal yet see so I'm not missing much cool so so for for viewers that don't know what Gasparilla Gasparilla is a fictitious pirate that we made up in Tampa and it's just a reason to have a Mardi Gras style party so and they do it every year and it's a big deal to the city I'm assuming it generates a lot of money so they're never gonna stop doing it but Jose guys right josé Gaspar which which he does not exist at least there's no proof that he exists but no they readily admit that it's fake so that's interesting because it's you're kidding a representation of him what he what we think he looks like yep well you know it's I guess it's better than I don't know other things like looting or whatever this looting go on during Gasparilla I don't know or the just a drunken fest drunken okay so I heard in New Orleans the best tip they can give you to go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans is never sit on anything that's below your nearly around right except why move to Michigan if you live in Tampa that doesn't very me that doesn't make very much sense right it's counterintuitive all right I know I know we're in Michigan did you live okay what city oh that's why you said that okay there we go so you've had the wine at Traverse City then right well you've had the wine at Traverse City it's excellent I did not know they had wineries in Michigan or vineyards but there's like twelve of them I know it's nuts I went there last summer and we stopped at six of them after six I couldn't handle it so we stopped look it's beautiful up there waters clean air is clean we go blueberry that's true you can't can't bury people that's true you're right all right gonna have my Wheaties who was going oh yeah yeah yeah that's my roof that's good we'll take it he'll be he won't be in pain from his toes I swear sir Oh maybe whoa sorry yep spoke too soon we were doing so well yep a seat would be awesome we don't have a stool right yeah I'll just kneel on the hospital or how about that no biggie wouldn't be the first time I've laid on hospital floors it's not the ideal situation to be in but when you got to do it you got to do it okay I might try to get underneath this thing because I don't want it there it's just bugging me you got to be nice because it's connected to the nail bed is he gonna kind of ease it up and then I look at the patient to make sure he's not in any pain you don't want to have that stuff there if you can get rid of it obviously that's logical there you go so now you could actually see his pink skin see yeh skin there we go I gotta get with that with a burr I got to do this side now there is sorry so how long has it been since you cut your nails I'm just curious no I would love to cut your fingernails but in Florida I can't do it it's a stupid rule but it's basically lawyers making up these rules you know for liability purposes yeah let's see I'm gonna attack this one we're just gonna go right here and start there I'm gonna go home today in my way it's gonna be like you uh groveling today my knees are gonna be all swollen almost there difficult I can see that was a big one much better I'll work on the details in a second while we're here we'll do the low-lying fruit the low-hanging fruit with our time here I know this gentleman wants to eat lunch and we are keeping him from eating lunch I know I get angry if I don't eat okay sometimes when they twist I mean they're obviously really long so there's a big lever on for the moving could see the movement when you cut them this one's interesting because it grow up well that's interesting so you don't see that very often where it grows up and back into the skin so I have to be careful because you don't want to cut the skin that's in between there so you got to be nice basically always be nice you got to check the skin cuz sometimes an ulcer can develop there I had that before I've seen that before I should say sorry so I'm a big do when I hold a little bit more man it's not easy okay not easy you know all the Bloods rushing to my head I can't see that's nail all right good we'll be watching literally have my head down and stay down between this because do it without having the patient move too much because that's moving the joints around so we're trying to be as nice as possible we're gonna pause we've um we've successfully removed the majority of the nails so now we're going to concentrate on getting rid of all the debris the Hydra carry tonic tissue in between you don't need that there you don't want any excess anything you don't want to all serratus and healthy skin and that's why I've got this skin cleanser spray here I'm just gonna do a little more detail work just so we can get him down as far as possible just in case he doesn't show up at our door in nine weeks so at least he gets the most benefit longest time to benefit that's a little close to comfort of course they go for the easier one first right what am I looking at right next door right next door so literally next to the hospital you live close by it was you lives probably 15 20 minutes away that's it yeah that hurt yeah okay I'm gonna soften you up first before I do any of that let me just look back at this one because I want to make sure we got that Alex I mean what a difference already from what we started with but still not perfect I'm sure all the male critics out there would agree we'll get it closed we're on our lunch break so we've got a limited amount of time until we have patience again at the office and I know Alec still has to eat all right let's start with the left or the right side you're just gonna feel some cold fluid okay it's a spray the cleaner it's not gonna sting or anything it's just cleanser it's tough taking that we'd be in there I'm not I'm not make you uncomfortable right you're doing okay okay just try soft not these calluses can make it easier to take off just like that nice and easy you don't want to rip the skin Lloyd we had him in a chair oh my goodness right it's been you know a good amount of time you would just be faster I should say but I'm gonna do what you got to do not too bad as well okay think that is pretty darn good get more things at the office but for now that is pretty darn good it's pretty soaking these guys so you should go a little bit more there come the fact that it's not better these are actually harder just what Yeah right left my left doing okay I know you're hungry so I'm trying to do as fast as possible almost there that hurts okay I'll stop with that one you let me know okay don't be shy because now you know we're doing the majority of the work so next time I see you we won't have to do all this okay you won't it won't be as a difficult that looks pretty good so the nice thing is almost done almost done the nice thing is is that you don't have any alterations in between the toes which is great because a lot of the time when you get all this stuff in there it breaks down the skin and then you get a wound you don't have any wounds which is awesome because we don't want a wound you definitely don't want any wounds okay I'm just gonna burn this stuff down and then you'll be good to go okay what's that no no those other officers are tricky too I know the problem is is where else do you sit besides you don't I mean so so it's gonna vibrate but it shouldn't hurt I know it feels funny is this too much I'll turn it down just a little bit all I'm doing really right now is smoothing it out I'm not gonna I'm not gonna grind down the nails too far today sorry okay you're tolerating it okay okay I know it vibrates your bones I know I'm sorry that let's take okay

  1. When I see crap like this I want to beat a CNAs butt or the RNs. Someone in that nursing home dropped the ball big time on this old dude. No way they couldn't have cleaned his feet at the very least. No excuses.

  2. Omg, why family don’r care about his nails, litle warm wather, a litle shower gel, drying and take some foot cream?

  3. So many comments about this gentleman's feet.. keep this in mind if u have seniors living in your neighborhood..stop in ask them if there is anything u can do to help them

  4. I feel the same way I feel when I see a six hundred pound person that decides he/she should lose weight…Maybe you should of thought about losing weight at 400 pounds!, how could anyone let it get that bad? I

  5. I don’t care how old you are ask someone to help you get up and into a hot shower/bath and clean your own feet you could of prevented this from happening like disgusting you’re just being lazy if you can’t give your feet a wash

  6. It is not always the fault of the nursing home. Sometimes the patients won't allow the staff to work on them. Especially those with dementia. Patients will become violent sometimes.

  7. Where’s his family!! No excuse for this. See this is another reason I get so pissed at DC for screaming about illegals rights(none in my book)and treating them so good yet this crap is happening to our elderly. My heart is breaking.

  8. The fact that you both came over to the hospital on your lunch break to help this man, shows how incredibly dedicated you are to helping those in need. The fact that he lives in a nursing home…shows that someone needs to report them ASAP. This is cruel and unusual punishment, neglect, elderly abuse from people who shouldn't be working there if they can't help those in need.
