Nail surgery is a specialized procedure used to address a variety of nail disorders and conditions, including ingrown toenails, fungal infections, nail deformities, and chronic nail trauma. Nail surgery may involve partial or complete removal of the affected nail, excision of ingrown nail tissue, or surgical correction of nail deformities.

Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, inflammation, and infection. In cases of severe or recurrent ingrown toenails, nail surgery may be recommended to remove the offending nail edge and prevent future ingrowth.

Nail surgery for fungal infections involves removing the infected nail tissue and treating the underlying fungal infection with oral or topical antifungal medications. In some cases, surgical debridement or chemical cauterization may be performed to remove thickened or damaged nail tissue and promote healthy nail growth.

Nail surgery may also be performed to correct nail deformities such as pincer nails, spoon nails, or nail dystrophy caused by trauma, injury, or underlying medical conditions. Surgical techniques such as nail avulsion, matrixectomy, or nail reconstruction may be employed to reshape the nail and restore its normal appearance and function.

While nail surgery is generally safe and effective, it is essential to consult with a qualified podiatrist or nail specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment approach for your specific condition. By addressing nail disorders and conditions early and seeking prompt medical attention, individuals can prevent complications and maintain healthy, beautiful nails.
