Ingrown Toenail Treatment (Orthopedic)

Body Area: Legs / Feet
Body Parts: Toes

An orthopedist, podiatrist, or general surgeon can remove a toenail that has grown into the skin. Local anesthetic is usually all that is required. Sometimes only a portion of the nail will be removed, but in some cases the entire toenail will need to be removed.
