toenail removal surgery

Toenail removal surgery is generally a surgical treatment of ingrown toe nails.

The initial surgical approach is typically a partial avulsion of the lateral nail plate known as a wedge resection or a complete removal of the toenail.

If the ingrown toenail recurs despite this treatment, destruction of the side nail bed with anesthesia and proper equipment is recommended.

Topical antibiotics may be used post procedure but oral antibiotics are not recommended as they may delay healing.
