Nail procedures are performed under sterile conditions and are as safe for a diabetic as a non-diabetic. Uncontrolled diabetes can impair healing and increase your risk of infection. If you have complications from your diabetes, such as PVD or neuropathy, we will take extra steps to minimize any problems. Keeping your diabetes under control and following post operative instructions are the best things you can do to heal quickly.
