Ingrown Toenail Removal and Treatment
Ingrown nails occur when the edge of a nail either applies too much pressure or pierces the neighbouring skin. It is a painful condition and one of the most common issues we address as Podiatrists on a daily basis.
Nail surgery is a common procedure performed by Podiatrists to effectively treat an ingrown toenail. Surgery may be required when an ingrown toenail repeatedly gets infected, is continually painful, affects the patient’s ability to wear shoes, or the ingrown nail begins to inhibit work, sport, or other activities.
