Toenail Surgery

Healthy toenails tend to grow straight and outward. They are not just good looking, they also serve as protection for your toes. But that’s not all.

Your nails can provide an insight into the state of your health. Untreated toenail conditions could create more problems for you in the long run. From infections to chronic pain and more.

If you’re currently experiencing considerable discomfort because of a recurring ingrown nail problem or other toenail condition, then you might need nail surgery.

To be sure, book an appointment with us today at Hart & Sole Podiatry.

Toenail Surgery Options

At Hart & Sole Podiatry, we have various nail surgery options for patients who are dealing with one or more of the following issues:

  • Deformed toenails
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Flat toenails
  • Wide toenails
  • Unsuitable toenail bracing

 

To fix these conditions, our podiatrists may recommend one of many options.

Non-Invasive Nail Bracing

Non-invasive nail bracing provides immediate relief from pain without requiring surgery. It will allow you to wear comfortable footwear, and go about your day-to-day activities as quickly as possible.

Partial Nail Avulsion

Partial nail avulsion helps prevent a recurrence of the ingrown toenail and can often permanently fix the problem.

Total Nail Avulsion

Total nail avulsion is often used when the toenail is badly damaged. This procedure is likely to help produce new toenails that won’t cause the same problems.

Nail Wedge Resections

Nail wedge resections can provide a permanent solution to ingrown toenails that cause persisting severe pain.

Ingrown Toenail Surgery

Nail wedge resections can provide a permanent solution to ingrown toenails that cause persisting severe pain.

When Do You Need Nail Surgery?

Some nail infections and problems can be treated non-surgically. But if your situation falls into one or more of the following categories, then you’ll need nail surgery:

  • If the infection or ingrown nail doesn’t get better
  • Non-surgical treatments don’t permanently solve the problem
  • The infection keeps reoccurring
  • You keep visiting the doctor or podiatrist for the same nail problems
  • The use of antibiotics isn’t helping the condition
  • Ingrown toenails keep coming back
  • There’s no significant improvement after multiple non-surgical treatments

 

If you are currently dealing with any of these conditions, then a toenail surgery might be the best option. Book an appointment with us at Hart & Sole Podiatry today for a free consult.
