Ingrown Toenails

Innovation Podiatry  >  Ingrown Toenails

In the most minor cases, we will simply cut the nail to shorten it, and show you how to cut the nail in the future, to prevent ingrowing of the nail again. In more severe cases, but not those in which an infection hasn’t developed, we may gently remove the ingrown portion of the nail. This affords considerable relief, but is temporary.

After a few weeks, when the nail grows long again, it will again grow in. In cases where the nail has grown in repeatedly, or more critically, when the nail edge has penetrated the skin and caused an infection, we will perform a minor procedure called an Ingrown Nail Correction or Matricectomy. We will gently numb your toe, reshape the nail edge and finally, apply a medicine which will, in most cases, permanently prevent the nail edge from growing improperly again.
