Ingrown Toenail Procedures

Toenails with corners or sides that dig painfully into the skin are known as ingrown toenails. These are usually caused by improper nail trimming, but can also result from shoe pressure, local injury, fungal infection, genetic predisposition, or abnormal foot structure. Sometimes ingrown nails can be prevented by trimming toenails straight across and not too short, or by selecting proper shoe styles and size.

If the ingrown nail can not be remedied with simple conservative measures, our podiatrists can perform a number of procedures to remove the offending nail border or the entire nail if it is necessary. The nail border can be removed permanently in the office with the chemical, “matrixectomy”.
