Nail Surgery at Step Right Health

When is Nail Surgery Necessary?

Surgery is generally considered the last resort when less invasive treatments fail to provide relief or when the condition is too severe to be managed conservatively. Conditions that may require surgical intervention include chronic or recurring ingrown toenails, complicated fungal infections, or extensive damage to the nail or underlying nail bed.

Initial Consultation and Diagnosis

The first step in any surgical procedure is an in-depth consultation and diagnosis. Our team of experts will conduct a thorough examination to determine the best course of action. We then discuss your options, ensuring you're informed and comfortable before proceeding.

Anesthesia and Sterilization

All our surgical procedures are conducted under local anesthesia to ensure minimal discomfort. We adhere to stringent sterilization protocols to minimize the risk of infection, using state-of-the-art sterilization equipment and techniques.

Comprehensive Aftercare

Post-surgical aftercare is crucial for a successful outcome and speedy recovery. Our team will guide you through wound care, pain management, and any necessary medications. We also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing process and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Surgical Options

Depending on your diagnosis, we offer various surgical procedures, including:

Full or Partial Nail Removal (Nail Avulsion)

This is often the go-to procedure for severe ingrown toenails or significant fungal infections.

Removal of the Nail Matrix

This more radical option is generally reserved for cases where recurrence is a significant concern. By removing the nail matrix, the nail is prevented from growing back.

Nail Reconstructive Procedures

For nails that have been damaged due to trauma or infection, reconstructive options can restore the natural appearance and function of your nails.

Preventive Measures and Education

Part of our post-surgery protocol includes educating our patients on how to prevent future nail issues. This could involve proper nail care techniques, suitable footwear recommendations, and lifestyle changes that could benefit your overall foot health.
