Ingrown Toenail Surgery
Nail surgery (partial nail avulsion) is recommended for patients who suffer with moderate to severe ingrown toenails. It gives a permanent resolution of the problem, so no more pain/infections ever again.
The toe is numbed for this procedure, so you can sit back and relax while your podiatrist carefully removes the offending section of nail. Once this is complete, a chemical called phenol can be applied to the growth cells/root, which prevents the problem section of nail from ever regrowing. Then you can enjoy a lifetime free from ingrown toenails.
