Ingrown Toenail Procedures in Southern California
Treatment & Diagnosis for Ingrown Toenails
There are 2 types of procedures our podiatrists can do to relieve the pain and inflammation from an ingrown toenail. Both podiatry procedures, under a local anesthetic block, remove the offending sides of the nail that is causing the problem. The first procedure is called an avulsion, which removes the side of the nail temporarily allowing it to grow back. The other procedure is called a matrixectomy, which removes the side of the nail permanently so it doesn’t grow back. When you have a consultation with our doctors, they will decide which podiatry procedure will be best for you.

"I've always believed in exhausting conservative treatment over surgery. Over the years in practice, I've kept many people out of the operating room. Even then, the patients who have been taken to surgery are extremely pleased with their results. I will do all I can to get you moving again...without pain or discomfort!"
