Those who are suffering from an ingrown toenail know how uncomfortable and painful it can be. We know that too and we do our best to give some relief to those “angry toes”.
We can temporarily remove the spike in a conservative manner to reduce the pain. If the ingrown toenail was to reoccur, we can also do nail surgery to permanently fix it.
If the ingrown toenail is infected, we will prescribe antibiotics.
Before jumping into surgery, we will introduce all the possible options and educate the patients how to cut and file their nails.
If it comes to surgery, depending on each cases we can do
– Partial nail avulsion (PNA) with or without *phenol
– Total nail avulsion (TNA) with or without phenol
– Winograd Procedure
*Phenol is an acid we use to burn the nail root (matrix), so it does not grow back on the ingrown side.
