TRIMMING OF A DAMAGED, THICKENED SPLIT TOENAIL WITHOUT REMOVAL


TB: Well now you gonna be looking good, huh? All the girls gonna be coming now. P: Oh, yeah! (music) TB: Well once you get the insurance, like you said, we can remove that toenail. Patient: Yeah, I’m gonna remove it. Yeah. TB:That way no more problems. P: Yeah. TB: You’ve been dealing with that for a long time. P: Yeah, because my wife removed a toenail too. She said, “Leave it” but they just cut it off. She had a problem with her big toe nail and they just cut it off. TB: Just relax your foot sir. It’s okay. Yeah, we just have to do one hard part that’s numbing the toe. Once the toe’s numb, you don’t feel a thing. Then we put an acid to stop it from ever going back. all right P: All right. Good. TB: You just relax. Let’s trim these toe nails, okay? P: Yes. TB: So how’s the airport life? Must be busy. P: Yeah I’ve been working there since November so yes it is. TB: It’s cutthroat down there, isn’t it? P: Yeah. TB: You gotta hustle. P: Well, my normal job I gotta hustle; my important job. TB: The important job. P: I can’t give it up. No I can drive I can go to Canada but at my age to get a free ticket, it’s not worth it to me. You got to stand by and I can’t bother with that and if I can’t buy my ticket, I don’t go. I don’t want to show for the airport and they tell you you can’t on the flight so. I don’t charge for my company. TB: So how long are you going this time? P: I’m going 12 days this time. Then I’m going back in June the 10th again, for like maybe two weeks and then in August, I’m going on a cruise. My brother getting more than a cruise. TB: Your brother? P: Yeah. He lives in England. He’s getting more than a cruise. TB: How old is he? P: He’s 50 and he’s been with this girl for 8 years when she forced him to marry her. (TB laughs) So just when he is getting married, I’m getting divorced. TB: That’s how it works, huh? One goes in, one goes out. P: I don’t want nobody to limit my life at my age. I’m going to be 60 this year, in November. I don’t want to nobody to limit me, you know. I tell my wife they just want to do stuff with their family and their kids they don’t wanna involve you and your family TB: This is brand-new because before you were still married, right? P: I’ve been married since 2007. But I have bigger kids and my wife met me without my kids and she never took on with my kids, you know? TB: That’s hard. P: So, that’s a problem. TB: Yeah, that makes a problem. P: My kids Iive at my house and I live at her house with our son. So my son is getting big. I just decided I go back to my house. So I really don’t want to go to Jamaica. I want to go far off. So you’re a young man. When you get to my age, you want to enjoy life. You don’t want a woman to tell you… When are you going to Jamaica? No, I want to go to Vegas. No let’s go to church. I want to go to Vegas. I don’t wanna I want to have fun like I used to. TB: Like you used to? P: Yeah! I used to do what I wanted to do. Now not that I couldn’t do it, but the wife want to know what you’re doing, why are you going there, why are you going there and they want you to bring them, go to their parents. I can’t bother with that, man. Life is too short, my friend. TB: You’re a young gun, uh? P: Yeah. TB: If anything gets sore, you let me know, okay? P: Yeah. P: Yeah, that toe never been normal since I’ve known myself (since I was born). TB: So your whole life, huh? P: Yeah and then there was the fungus underneath. So the doctor gave me a tablet years ago. What it did was push the fungus outside to the front. TB: It does but the problem is because your nail’s damaged, it’s always gonna grow thick whether there’s fungus or no fungus this nail’s permanently damaged, so that’s why the pills not gonna do anything. P: Yeah. Okay. TB: Best thing to do, like we discussed it’s just to remove the whole toenail permanently; no more toenail. P: It will always grow back if I don’t take it off? TB: Even if you remove it surgically, but we don’t use an acid to kill the nail, it’ll grow back the exact same way. P: If you’re gonna take care of the foot, I gotta talk to some of these guys at the airport; if they have insurance tell him to come here. TB: That’d be amazing. Thank you, sir. P: More people need to take care of their feet. At the airport, most people have problems with their feet. They do so much walking there. Would that be okay? TB: That’s good. P: Is your dad playing golf and stuff. TB: He’s trying to. He has to go away right now since it’s wintertime. but P: Where does he winter? TB: Hmm? P: Where does he winter? TB: Where does he winter? P: Yeah. TB: If he can, he’ll go maybe the Cuba once. Go maybe the down south in the States just to play. It all depends. But he’s a 73 this year. P: Yeah. Yeah you gotta enjoy life. TB: That’s the thing; life isn’t forever. P: Yeah. I know a guy, an Italian guy, who is 85 and he still don’t wanna stop working. TB: 85! P: Yeah. He had a pension for 20 years and still running down money. Some people will never make money, will never know, they’ll never stop working. You can’t do that my friend. Life is in stages. We’re gonna get old and die or we die young or whatever, but you can’t work all you life. You know what I’m saying? TB: I hear ya. Life is meant to be to enjoy yourselves, if we can. P: Your dad lived to 73, he lived a good life. He will probably live another 20 years. You’re gonna come to work everyday at 73 and work? TB: No, no. P: The kids are all grown-up, why do you work that way for? TB: Ya, you work hard, you save all the money it all goes to them. And they spend it and have fun! P: (laughs) They spend it wherever they are and enjoy themselves. Yeah, you give them education in this country, this is back where I am from in the (?) You know that time you gotta do this for appearance? But now in this country they can get a pension, you know what I am saying? TB: Yeah. P: You don’t need to. You get the kids an education and they get their own stuff. TB: What part of Jamaica are you going to? P: This time I’m going to a place called Independence City. But I usually just rent a car. TB: You’re gonna sa befe down there?
They’re gonna look at you say look at this foreigner! Look at that foreigner, man. Look at this light-skinned foreigner! P: It’s funny, I had a girl that lived in the ghetto and I go there to pick her up and my brother was with me. In October, I went there and my brother didn’t want to go there because he was not used to that. Other kids go to Jamaica and never go to the ghetto but I go to the ghetto. So I don’t care; nobody will bother me. TB: No? P: No. They don’t bother me. I know where to go and what to deal with. TB: Do you have to carry anything on you? (a weapon) P: No. TB: No? P: No, I don’t need to. Nobody bothers me, man. I really don’t go in certain areas; you don’t go there. But nobody bothers me. TB: Nobody bothers you, huh? P: No. TB: We’re getting this one nice and flat. P: Yeah. TB: Okay, I’m gonna just file these nails quickly and then take out the corn, okay? P: Yeah. TB: Well now you’re gonna be looking good, huh? All the girls gonna be coming now. P: Oh, yeah. TB: You can’t go barefoot; you’re gonna get too many of them now! P: Yeah. TB: They say look at this young man with the nice toenails. (laughs) One done. TB: You okay? P: Yeah. TB: So yeah, what do you think about the new office? P: Yeah, that was what I was thinking; it’s a central location and more convenient. TB: It is, it is. It’s easier getting in and out. P: Yeah, that’s good. How long have you been here now? TB: Two weeks. P: Oh, you just moved in. TB: We just moved in. P: It’s a new building, right? TB: A brand new building. P: There is another lady who used to work across from you. Does she still work here? TB: No. She’s moving on to her own place now. P: Oh, okay, okay. So where did you study to do this? What is it called? What’s the courses called? TB: It’s called the chiropody program and it’s in Michener Health Institute in Toronto. So after a science degree, it’s three years, just feet.

  • Nope! I won't go to the ghetto in Jamaica! I saw some crazy things when I WASN'T in the ghetto! LOL Beautiful resorts though! We had an amazing time!

  • Happy 73rd birthday papa toe! Your son is amazing and we love him. I'm sure you're very proud of him. 🎂🎂

  • I really love watching your vids, not just for the excellent foot related content but for the fantastic characters you get in that chair! Always have to have the volume on. Cheers👍🏽🇬🇧

  • I turned 60 last September and I so get where he's at in life!! Love his ideals and love your compassion for da Toe Bro!!

  • This poor guy thinks he’s on his deathbed he’s not even 60 and he’s talking about how old he is I’m 56 and I certainly don’t sound anything like he does

  • Jamaica is ok people die every where around the world so please don't talk down about Jamaica please we are some of the nicest people on the face of the Earth.

  • Love your teasing him about being careful going barefoot cuz the chicks would be chasing him!!! Giggling when I heard that.

  • I get so excited when you post a new video! You're such a pleasure to watch 💜 Those toes look brand new! 😄

  • Recently I had my ingrown toenail cut out. The worst part was the 2 freezing spray things he gave me so I would be distracted from the shot. Now I’m a lot better

  • OMG u tube recommend I watch dr nail nipper so I tried it. Awful watched 2 one on a corn and one on nails and she is terrible. The nails looked worse when she was done and the woman kept jumping because she was hurting her. And the corns were only half done and looked like a mess when she got done.. toe bro you are more amazing than I ever imagined. Thanks for being there for all these people who really need you.

  • Toe bro, here's a filming suggestion….have a light shining on the patient's foot. The light from the big window is messing with the view. Every time you move you have a dark shadow or glare on the foot. I still love watching you do feet. 😉

  • Noticed this for a while, but in his vid it particularly stood out. Can we all take a moment to appreciate how cool it is that Jonathan's able to use the nail nippers with both of his hands? Dem skills tho. Totally killin the toe game!

  • My dad has a damaged thickened toenail. He’s had it since he was a teen, from having a dresser fall on it. He’s never really complained about it much but I definitely can see how it could be a pain for elderly people. Tho my dad’s seems to be darker than the ones I’ve seen on your channel.

  • My dad had a fungal on his nail and he put cinnamon essence and the nail grew out and now he has beautiful feet.

  • Toe Bro, you have a great talent and are so caring to your patients! Love the interaction you have with them as well. Love your videos🤗

  • Ok, quick question Jonathon. In the last 3 months, my nail has split into two separate bits like this. But I've not damaged it at all (Not even wearing tight shoes) and it's not thick or discoloured. So any ideas as to the cause?

  • People have to problems for all different reasons but when they leave there to looks considerably better and that's what counts not for cosmetic but walking and shoes ….. This is awesome

  • Great job Toe Bro, but as I continue to watch your video's, I can see that you truly care about your patient's, keep up the Great work that you do, looking forward to watching many more video's!!!!😁❤

  • Love you, Toe Bro! I watch all your videos religiously. Not as much for education but because I absolutely love how you interact with your patients. You get some crazy characters in that chair! You can tell you put your heart into your work. Keep those awesome videos coming! Hope the new office is working out for you! Lots love from Southern Cali! xo

  • Sadly in this day and age seniors have to work longer because Social Security is not enough. Very heartbreaking. They should be enjoying life.

  • Where's the corn removal which was supposed to follow the last video? I was looking forward to that. 😭

  • Mr. ToeBro, why do you think it is often the case that such a toenail always grows damaged once injured? When hair or a bone is damage they dont grow back in damaged typically.

  • Seems like not only has his big toe been damaged but his heart has also.. Wives and husbands are supposed to help you be a better person. Be there to lift you up and be your wingman not drag you down and make you miserable telling you what you can or can't do! Anywho he was a very nice gentleman and I hope he's able to get insurance to get that bothersome toe nail off.. As usual you did an amazing job!!! Toes up from me

  • I'm Jamaican , this guy's voice and personality reminds me of my grandpa and uncle . They sound just a like !

  • I like the new drill bit! Much smaller. Sorry, I ment to tell you that when you first used it. Thanks for sharing your videos!

  • I love this gentleman he has the right idea. Live your life to the fullest especially after you retire or hit 60!!! That's what I tell my parents, "don't worry about me. Enjoy yourselves, I'll be ok. You worked hard for all the money you made. Enjoy each other and let me worry about my family!!!". Oh, where are you located? My husband has various issues with his feet and I would love to have you help him.

  • So according to research a lot of scabies reinfections are caused by onycholysis and scabies living beneath the toe nail creating a hive.

    This is really common apparently And I think that it is worth discussing and researching further.

    Now of course you wear gloves but it has been noted on a few occasions you may have come into contact with scabies?

    It is much more common then people think and foot care and nail treatment is imperative to successfully treating an infection.

    Many people are treating athletes foot however they have a scabies kminfection that is manifesting under the damaged nail. They can thrive within a fungal nail environment.

    Hope this gets to you toebro

  • Thank you. You are so kind and sweet. God obviously blessed you with a servants heart. The way you take care of people, specifically the elderly, is amazing. I have watched a mess of your videos but for whatever reason, this time, I teared up because it made me think of my grandma. She lived with my parents and I for 3 yrs before she went to meet her Lord. My mom, my sister and i cared for her and made sure she had weekly mani and pedi's. She loved having her nails painted.
    I wish all elderly people had care like that. Like what you do.
    *I actually stumbled on your videos and watched as many as I could to learn how to take care of my bf's feets. I have learned a lot! Thank you!

  • I love watching the toe bro…he never needs to stitch up after dealing with ingrown nails….my guy butcher's me….i.e. always need stitches afterwards…maybe it's what he just prefers todo….but after two surgeries I have like nails growing on the side of each nail…but I can easily pull them out when they get long enough….this video was cool…I know someone who has a toe like that….oh yah that nail filer is really hard on the ears sometimes…maybe it's just me and my dentist noise phobia idk…..but yeah…I love your vids toe bro!…the new office must be more spacious I hope…..Ivan imagine how hard it must've been leaving were you grew up….must've felt like leaving home…anyways…keep it up!
