Ingrown toenails are a very common, painful foot problem and are seen all the time in our practice. Many of my patients come in after performing years of bathroom surgery, making it worse and not knowing there’s a simple and relatively painless permanent correction. When a nail grows into the skin, it hurts and may be infected. If your toenail becomes infected or develops a habit of growing inward, a permanent narrowing procedure is the answer. We will perform this minor procedure to correct the nail and prevent it from growing back. We use a freezing method so you won’t feel the needle pinch with a local anesthetic. Remember, you don’t have to live with the pain of digging them out. We can help. Just come in, and we will discuss it.
