Debriding – Shaving or Debriding – Calluses and Nails

This is an interesting discussion on Present Podiatry about the importance of debriding calluses or nails. As pointed out by several of the podiatrists, they use the debridement session as an opportunity to examine the callosity or nail more closely. As one practitioner noted, an examination after debridement of a callus can often expose an early stage diabetic foot ulcer under a callus.

Kathleen Satterfield, DPM, leads the discussion. In an earlier post, we compile some resources on Callus Debridement or Shaving of the Diabetic Foot.
