Podology

Podiatry is a field of health service that aims to understand the physiology, anatomy, mechanics, and pathology of the foot, diagnose and treat foot problems, and prevent clinical foot problems.

Over a lifetime, various health issues can arise in the feet, which bear the body’s weight. Bone and joint deformities, ingrown toenails, calluses, warts, toenail or skin fungus, and problems related to sweating are among the most common foot problems. At the Hand and Foot Center, medical foot care addresses these issues in the feet, alleviating clinical foot problems and preventing new ones with its protective properties.

Podiatric Procedures In medical foot care, both aesthetic and health-related procedures are performed, including hygienic nail cutting and design, cleaning and polishing the nail surface, and removal of hardened skin. These applications, performed with medical devices and special milling tools, enable having beautiful, aesthetic, and healthy feet.

Additionally, at Biruni University Hospital, screenings are conducted for all newborns, including hearing tests, phenylketonuria, and congenital hip dislocation, to identify diseases. Thus, early diagnosis and treatment of these diseases become possible.

The Biruni University Hospital Florya Pediatric Clinic, designed with various toys and colors to entertain children and make them feel comfortable in a hospital environment, also includes a changing and breastfeeding room for parents’ comfort.

Ingrown Toenails Incorrect nail cutting, unconscious pedicures, tight shoes or even socks, edema during pregnancy, overweight, fungal infection, deformities due to trauma, are among the causes of ingrown toenails. In such cases, without the need for surgical intervention on the nail, the ingrown problem is terminated by applying a three-piece wire system or tape system (orthonix). Surgical procedures are not a permanent solution; the nail can grow back and become ingrown again. Correcting the shape of the nail is a more permanent solution, and the method is chosen according to the condition of the ingrown.

With the 3TO wire system, there is no need for surgical removal of the ingrown toenail. 3TO prevents the toenail from becoming ingrown again.

Toenail Fungus Fungal infection is a contagious disease that significantly affects a person’s physical and visual comfort. In the treatment plan, mechanical cleaning of the nail tissue is performed to remove disease agents and ensure that the drugs used act more quickly. This procedure, performed monthly, shortens the time to get rid of the problem.

Diabetic Foot Care The secondary problems most commonly experienced by diabetic patients are circulation disorders and loss of sensation in the feet. In the first stage of treatment and care, superficial and deep sensory tests are performed to determine whether neuropathy has developed in the patient. If a small problem on our patients’ feet is not addressed, it can progress to serious complications, even amputation. Diabetic patients’ foot care needs to be special; foot care and treatments are performed with blunt special tips and mills to strengthen and support sensitive skin tissue, and foot care products that strengthen the skin are applied.

Deformed Nails Thickening is also seen in nails that have been deformed or distorted due to trauma or different reasons. The thickened nail tissue is thinned with special devices and tools to restore it to its normal thickness and shape. In the elongation process, gel nails (onychoplasty) application can be performed to shape or protect the nail bed, and this application ensures that the patient feels good visually because it gives a healthy nail appearance.

Gel System (ONYCHOPLASTY) This method, also used as a missing nail completion method, is the medical form of the prosthetic nail. This application, performed to create the nail bed in deformed and ingrown nails or to protect its shape, supports the treatment process and is preferred visually.

Callus Treatment Calluses, which occur due to improper pressure distribution, pressure, and friction on different parts of the foot, including the sole of the foot, can be removed with appropriate milling tips, and preventive support materials are used to prevent their reformation.

Heel Cracks Cracks in the heels occur due to dryness in the skin, weight gain in the body, systemic diseases, use of some drugs, constant intervention with pumice stone, etc. These cracks and fissures, as an infection gateway, can lead to the development of more different complications. As a podiatric intervention, the primary cause is determined, and problematic areas are cleaned with special diamond milling tips and supported with moisturizing and reparative products to prevent recurrence, and precautions are taken against their reformation.
