Is There a Procedure to Permanently Remove an Ingrown Toenail?

Yes, there is a procedure to permanently remove your ingrown toenail (onychocryptosis).

The procedure is called a Matrixectomy, it is a safe and effective way to permanently stop an ingrown toenail from coming back. In most cases, only a slight portion of the nail has to be removed. 

When you have an ingrown toenail, it's best to seek treatment from a podiatrist (foot doctor), who is specifically trained to diagnose and treat foot conditions.

Consult a podiatrist to find out what treatment option is right for you. Call 562-433-0478 to schedule an appointment or request an appointment online.
