Patient:            Oh, I can’t feel that tourniquet on there.

 

Doctor:            No, you won’t feel it, you’re numb.

 

Doctor:            You okay?

 

Patient:            I can’t believe I can’t feel that.

 

Doctor:            That’s the magic.

 

Patient:            Holy cow, I should be screaming my head off!

 

Doctor:            Yeah, if it was not numb–

 

Patient:            Oh my God–

 

Doctor:            –I would imagine you would be screaming your head off.

 

Patient:            Oh, yeah! Only I wanted to do this myself, so [chuckle].

 

Doctor:            Well you could have, but then you would have been screaming your head off.

 

Patient:            Yeah [giggles]. And I am getting so fat I can’t reach my feet, that’s one reason I want it done, I can’t get to them as good as I used to. Wow, that’s amazing. Now I was asking Lavonne is some of that hypertrophy in my toe going to go away after this?

 

Doctor:            Yeah, a little. It should to some degree, yeah.

 

Patient:            Bad, bad nail.

 

Doctor:            Exactly.

 

Patient:            Now you still have to get the matrix out?

 

Doctor:            I got the matrix out–

 

Patient:            Oh good!

 

Doctor:            –But if there’s more in here, we will take care of it.

 

Speaker 1:       Wow, Rog you’re pretty steady.

 

Doctor:            You may have a future in podiatry filming.

 

Speaker 1:       Yeah. [Laughter]

 

Patient:            Nothing else, just podiatry.

 

Doctor:            Yeah, that’s it, it’s real highly specialized.

 

Patient:            I’m happier already.

 

Doctor:            So now you can see the anastetic actually works.

 

Patient:            Wow.

 

Doctor:            Which is always nice.

 

Patient:            Was that just lidocaine?

 

Doctor:            And a little marcaine too. That’ll give you your long lasting relief.

 

Speaker 1:       There’s two settings, you can change it to a [inaudible]. It’s still recording though.

 

Patient:            Now that’s the acid to kill the rest of the matrix?

 

Doctor:            Yeah, and it’s actually a base.

 

Patient:            Oh, it is.

 

Doctor:            Yeah, we do it a little differently, we use a base and then we neutralize it with an acid.

 

Patient:            Is my toenail going to come off and grow back?

 

Doctor:            It shouldn’t. I mean it’s possible but it shouldn’t do that.

 

Doctor:            And there you have it.

 

Patient:            Is that silvadene?

 

Doctor:            It is. Good old fashioned silvadene, it’s still around.

 

Patient:            Hey that works pretty good, huh? [inaudible]

 

Doctor:            And there it is. There you go.
