October 16, 2019


>Today’s treatment can vary.>>After this treatment,>Yes.>>When can I go to work?>You can go right back to work.>>Oh, really?>Yeah, yeah. The only difference what we’re doing today is we’re cleaning up the wound. We’re making it healthier,>>Okay.>So that way it can heal better.>So not only are we gonna remove the dead skin, but we’re gonna give it the laser to increase blood flow. What you need to do is you need to reduce the pressure on your feet while you’re walking; that way it doesn’t build up so much hard skin and this thing can heal. Okay?>>Yeah.>So you just sit back, relax. I know we just tested your feeling. You have no feeling in the feet but if you feel discomfort you let me know, okay?>>Sure.>So I’ve been pretty impressed by your dressing. That’s pretty good. How often do you dress it?>>How, how often change?>Yes. How often do you change it?>>Every two days.>Okay.>And what’s the medicine you’re using?>>For, for what?>To change it?>>They put antibiotic material on this. That one you know?>Yep, yep. Do you know the name?>>And also…>>No, but I take antibiotic and they when they change the dressing they put the material material on.>Okay, okay.>>With antibiotic, antibotic materials and a piece of, you know…>So the goal here is to remove as much of this dead, bad skin so the new skin can come and heal this area.>>You, you take you talking to camera?>No, I’m talking to you! (laughter)>No, that’s our goal…>>Okay.>is to remove all this dead skin.>Yeah, we got to make this as clean as we can.>So we want the edges of the wound to be fresh. So we want it to bleed a little bit…>>That’s fine.>and that’s a it’s a good thing.>>That’s fine, that’s fine. It’s no use, no use for me.>>Because Rosenberg did this two times…>He did?>>Yeah that’s how I know because first time I was so scared because I think oh, no, no!>No freezing!>>No freezing! You know how how are we feel, but I didn’t feel anything.>Any pain?>>No.>No. That’s the scary thing. So like we discussed, being diabetic with no feeling in your feet, protection is very important. You should start looking at your feet every single day, at the bottom. Before after work, you should check your shoes. Make sure there’s nothing in your shoes. Any little pebble, any little stone…>>No, those shoes. It was not cheap, cheap shoes. I bought you know from higher shelf and they did me this and I threw it and I bring the shoes from from my country…>Yeah. leather shoes very light. Of course safety boots…>Yeah.>>and that shoe doesn’t mean anything… no more…>>How so you say…>Blister.>>Yeah.>So now we’re scraping the wound itself. Any pain?>>No.>Get rid of some of this dead, bad skin on top of the wound, so it’s fresh.>>Uh, what do you think about, uh oxygen? Did you hear about…>Yep.>>I been there before came here because this is at Otter Lake Ontario>Yeah. Yeah, yeah,>>I’ve been there and the young girl she she said I need a, um>You need a referral.>>Yeah, a referral from my doctor.>Yes.>>What do you think about his?>It works very well.>>I know..>But that’s a problem>It comes down to pressure You can do all the treatment in the world, but if you don’t remove the pressure on your feet when you’re working, this won’t heal.>>Okay.>Okay, so bury That chamber works Having this scrape down works. Doing a laser, what we’ll be doing today, works.>>Okay.>>If I go if he’s nothing happen I I have I can go there anyway that in that time or just…>Yeah.>>or just schedule something.>No, you can go there, you can get that done plus us doing laser all these things will be good.>All these things will be good>>I have to…>You have to get a referral. Yeah, I know unfortunately I can’t write the referral for you.>>You cannot?>No.>So, this one looks nice and healthy now, so we’re gonna apply the laser.>>Um hum>Luckily the wound does not go deep. Does not go… into your…>>Bone? into your bone deeper into the tissue.
Okay?>>So it’s okay now?>It’s okay.>So I’m gonna keep this covered and we’re gonna do the laser. Okay?>>All right. Just like that So we apply the laser for around three minutes. We dress the wound. That’s all we have to do, okay. This is gonna increase the blood flow for the next two to four days, and this is what’s gonna allow it to heal. We come back to make it a little bit more easier for you. I would say we just come back in two weeks. We scrape down all the dead skin and apply at least yes always always always Because of the way your foot is, this is a pressure point so you’re always gonna get callus to build up. We always have to make sure you don’t have callus on your foot because the callus will clog the wound and that’s why it hasn’t been healing. We have to keep it fresh. It has to close from the outside in. mm-hmm If hard skin grows on top, it won’t heal. It’ll become a pocket like a cave. We always have to leave it open and make sure the edges are always fresh so that way you can heal from that outside in. So the circle should get smaller and smaller and smaller.>>Rosenberger we did one time that’s it and put the Nora this takes multiple times>And it’s the the padding like we discussed. Once you offload the wound now, we can get this to heal.>Okay?

  1. This looks like an alien had sex with his foot without lube or a condom. Luckily, Toe Bro saved the day!!!

  2. This Is why I have started exercising again. I gained about 60lbs. in less then two years. Now I'm moving backwards to being thin again.

  3. I am type 1 diabetic have been for 12 years and diagnosed at 9 I am absolutely paranoid about my feet I check them at least 3 times a day and when ever my my sugars are which only happens when I have a cold, flu or any infection. I have to wash my feet every day wear slippers around the house or else I would freak out.

  4. Hey, Toe Bro! Can you do something showing what happens to campers/hikers/backpackers who let themselves develop immersion foot or let their blisters get out of hand? I've seen nothing on the topic from an expert that clearly explains and illustrates.

  5. Why do we love watching hi From Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

  6. That hole in his foot look like what my foot looked like after I stepped on a giant piece of glass and omg I bled and bled and bled and the glass actually had gone through to the top of my foot

  7. Bottom line is this man needs to get his blood sugar under control. High blood sugar destroys the healing process. Once he gets the infection in his bones he can face amputation.

  8. If my skin is being cut like that I will have scream really loud that I might kick the doctor face

  9. Thanks for beautiful post.

  10. I am so glad you have been teaching me about taking care of my feet. I have diabetic Neuropathy and now I watch my feet every day.

  11. Don't you mean inside out On Healing I have always been told to you from the inside out that way you don't get no abscess both of my grandmothers were diabetics no I understand why they always they're really good care of their feet

  12. its very weird seeing somebody just cut away at a persons foot like this with a scalpel

  13. So disusing๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ซ

  14. Toe bro I think you really care about people and I love watching the videos they are very educational thank you God bless you

  15. I also have type 2 DIABETES and do have neuropathy in my feet, but I go to all of my doctor follow up appointments and I also see a foot specialist. But my grandmother did have to have one of her legs amputated because she developed gangrene

  16. Each time I see you work on a patient's feet I am surprised about what the human body actually looks like exposed..without that one layer of skin to cover it. That skin that can (to a large extent) define how we are viewed by others..how we view ourselves. Aside from the obvious..the epidermis protecting our insides. I wonder what would happen if our bodies suddenly reversed themselves. If all the veins..arteries…heart muscle..etc. were the first exposed and the skin underneath. I know..too much time on my hands.

  17. It pisses me off so much that this poor guy can't take some serious time off to ensure this wound can heal properly

  18. โ€œyou talking to ๐Ÿ“ท?โ€
    โ€œNO, iโ€™m talking to you.โ€

  20. Cmon doc… don't like seeing blood and gore on a your you tube still pic. Its a turn off seeing that soon as I pull up youtube…gross.

  21. Ok but, who doesn't look at their feet? Especially long enough to get a giant yellow infected hole in their foot!

  22. weres all those foot fetish guys/girls at??……anit that sexy???
