For some folks, frequent ingrown toenails might be dictated by genetics. The nails may grow thicker, or just grow a certain way that then causes a corner, or the border of the nail to grow into the skin.
If you have a tendency to get ingrown toenails frequently, one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, and Maspeth may recommend an in-office procedure to correct the problem.
There is a permanent procedure that we can do where you can permanently remove the border of the toenail that keeps ingrowing. One of our expert podiatrists will numb the area and cut out the problematic part of the toenail. An acid is applied to prevent the nail from growing back. Full recovery usually takes between 2 to 4 weeks with no loss of function. It’s an easy procedure that can be done right in our office and takes about 10 minutes.
If you suffer from chronic ingrown toenails speak to one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, or Maspeth.
