Scheduled Seminars and Events

Dr. Lang and his staff believe that informed patients make better decisions about their health. With that in mind, we have created an extensive patient resource center covering an array of foot related topics. We regualrly conduct educational seminars on the most current podiatric subjects, such as fungal laser treatments, diabetic foot care, diabetic nutrition with our staff nutritionist, and many other podiatric issues.

Osteochondromas are benign bone tumors that form in the bone beneath the toenail. Osteochrondromas account for about half of all benign bone tumors, and occur mostly in children and young adults. Unless they cause irritation to the surrounding tissue, they are generally not painful.

In some cases, osteochondromas may cause a deformity in the toenail or lead to an ingrown toenail. When problematic, osteochondromas may be removed surgically. However, they can recur after the procedure.
