Ingrown & Fungal Toenails
Ingrown toenails can be the result of the way your nails are cut, but you may also just be prone to ingrown nails because of your nail shape or due to fungus or previous trauma to the nail. Persistent ingrown toenails can easily get infected or problematic if not appropriately addressed. We specialize in ingrown toenail procedures in our office and can usually remove painful nail borders with a procedure performed the day of your first visit. When you call our office for an ingrown toenail, just let the front desk know that you might need a procedure so that we schedule enough time for your visit, even if you’re not sure yet if you need the procedure. We can review the pros and cons with you of a procedure to help you make the choice that’s right for you.
Yellow, brittle nails are often a sign of toenail fungus. Because fungus grows so slowly, it can be difficult to treat. Our office can biopsy your toenails to find out what kind of fungus you have and to help select a treatment plan that’s right for you.
