Nail surgery is often performed when either conservative treatment fails or is not practical. Ingrown toenail surgery is a safe and effective option for patients who want permanent relief from ingrown toenails. Before this procedure is pursued our podiatrists will always conduct a thorough preoperative assessment and will also clinically assess the nail to determine if this type of surgery is suitable.
