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.
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.

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.
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.
