ABOUT THE BOOK
First publication of this kind on the Polish market. Compendium of knowledge about nail diseases. Dedicated primarily to professionals associated with the profession of podiatrist and people just learning in this direction, but also beauticians, cosmetologists and nail stylists as a rich source of knowledge about nail disorders. The author has described as many as 34 nail diseases, presenting photographs of cases and descriptions of their treatment methods. All disease entities are accompanied by photographs showing real cases from the author's podological practice and more. This edition has been expanded to include a description and documentation of diabetic-neuropathic onychopathy. It also includes extensive documentation related to orthonyxis, enriched with a review of commercially available orthonyxis brackets. One chapter is devoted to nail reconstruction techniques with a breakdown of the available techniques. Additionally, dressings used in podiatry and podiatric taping are discussed.
The author's collaboration with other medical groups such as physicians, Heilpraktiker, orthopaedic shoe technicians, physiotherapists and nursing staff made it possible to show new possibilities for the development of podiatry. The podiatrist has an irreplaceable role in this interdisciplinary treatment network. Thanks to the knowledge contained in the book "The Big Book of Nail Diseases", the treatment time can be significantly reduced and the effectiveness of the therapy can be ensured.
This edition will certainly be a textbook for the study of nail diseases, as well as a supplement to the knowledge gained during the practice of the podiatric profession. We are convinced that this book will be an indispensable support in everyday work in podiatric and cosmetic offices.
