COMPREHENSIVE CARE FOR INGROWN TOENAILS


Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe, causing redness and swelling, followed by pain and often infection.  

Ingrown toenails can occur due to improper trimming of the toenail, trauma or genetic factors.

Treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail.  If you have chronic ingrown toenails we can apply a chemical to the nail root to permanently prevent the re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail.

 Patients are typically back into a shoe and can resume their normal activities  almost immediately.
