Nail Surgery is a fast and successful permanent way out to numerous agonizing conditions of the nail. This surgery removes a portion or all of a nail under local anesthetic. This is performed in combination with chemical removal of the nail bed to avoid probable return of the initial problem such as in-grown or involuted nails.
An in-grown toe nail takes place when a nail has been chipped off or wrongly cut which leaves a nail spike or a rough shoulder. This may go through the soft tissue in the nail groove and grow to be painful and infected. On the other hand, involuted toe-nails are curls from side to side which results in pressure mounting in the nail groove alongside the edges of the nail. This may produce corns and hard skin which are uncomfortable.
Generally, nail conditions are treated with traditional methods such as applying antibiotics, removing the nail or taking away the nail bed. However, these solutions are temporary and sometimes the infections may return resulting in acute pain. If the problem persists, then nail surgery is recommended.
