Ingrown toenails are a painful condition where the side of the nail grows into the toe. There are a number of reasons they may occur including direct trauma, incorrect cutting of nails, tight footwear, and involuted nails (some people are born with nails that curl around in the corners).
Ingrown nails can often be managed conservatively however if the nail is very infected or if it is consistently painful or inflamed we recommend partial nail avulsion surgery.
