If standard treatments are insufficient, we offer cortisone injections and physical therapy services. Only on rare occasions is surgery indicated for this condition. Oftentimes, the condition is an acute flare-up and can be treated quickly. In some cases, we may recommend changes in lifestyle or footwear to prevent future flare-ups.
If you have chronically ingrown toenails or an acute ingrown nail due to trauma or failed trimming, we can help. Chronic conditions can be easily treated by a simple procedure in the office. We can remove a portion or the entirety of the nail, depending upon your individual case. Chronic cases can be treated so that they will never return.
Oftentimes, an acute case can have a simple treatment to allow the nail to return. If the problem returns, we can offer a more permanent solution.
