Ingrown toeNail removal Surgery

During a partial nail removal, the sides of the nail are cut away so that the edges are completely straight. A piece of cotton is placed under the remaining portion of the nail to keep the ingrown toenail from recurring. Total nail removal may be used if your ingrown nail is caused by fungal infection. Our doctor will give you a local pain injection and then remove the entire nail.

Ingrown toenail recovery

After surgery, you will probably need to keep your foot raised for the next one to two days and wear special footwear to allow your toe to heal properly. Please avoid movement as much as possible. The bandage is usually removed two days after surgery. Our doctor will advise you to wear open-toe shoes and other practical guides until your toe heals. For partial removal, your toenail will likely grow back a within a few months. If the entire nail is removed down to the base, it can take over a year to recover.
