Weirdly satisfying footage shows a podiatrist bringing a grim horn nail back to life.
Marion Yau – known as the Foot Fixer – used nail clippers, a water spray drill and a lot of patience to attack the gnarly, yellow toenail on her patient’s foot.
Working away on the thick nail – caused by a condition called onychogryphosis – she managed to reduce the length of the offending appendage by almost 90%.
Marion said: “When the nail grows at a faster rate than other nails it thickens and curls.
“This makes the nail look like a claw or a horn.
“It can be caused by trauma, fungal nail infection, psoriasis, PVD or neglect
“It is more common in older people, so for this to be on a younger gentleman is very rare.
“The patient was very happy with the treatment as the nail look better than before.”
