Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown Toenail Treatment
Cutting back the side of the toenail will often only provide short term relief of the pain. Our podiatrists will talk to you about a minor, surgical procedure done in our office that should provide you with relief from the painful, ingrown toenail. The procedure is called a partial matrixectomy and is a permanent removal of a small portion (of the side) of the toenail. After the surgery, the toenail looks normal but the side of the toenail is no longer in-grown. If the toe is infected, you may be placed on oral antibiotics prior to the procedure. Our podiatrist may also talk to you about a surgical procedure called an avulsion where part, or all, of the toenail is temporarily removed. This is sometimes done if the toe is quite infected. The permanent procedure can usually then be scheduled 2-3 months later if desired.
