Nail Surgery

What is the treatment of Nail Surgery?

In some cases apart of the nail or the toenail is to be removed so as to ensure that the nails are growing properly without any infection or discomfort. This removal is done via Nail surgery. The toenail can grow into the flesh of the finger and it can occur due to wearing too tight shoes around a toe, or by cutting toenails with too much of curve or due to a toenail injury or due to any fungal infection or due to a naturally grown curve. In all these cases this toenail may bring in discomfort. Similarly the nail may get injured and can get infected. In such cases there is a need to remove the part of the nail or the entire toenail so as to eliminate the infection growth and bring down the discomfort. This is done through nail surgery.

The surgery is done under the effect of local anesthesia so that the patient doesn’t feel any discomfort while undergoing the procedure. When the Nail has been successfully removed a particular chemical substance is applied on the nail bed so as to ensure that there is no regrowth of bad cells. Thus the regrowth of the nail cells is destroyed though the application of the chemical but in some cases a regrowth may take place. The surgery is a very simple process and the entire process can take a time period of 1 hour. The recovery time is shall be in between 4 to 8 weeks so that the entire healing of the affected area takes place.
