Pain When you Walk or Exercise
While I love when people walk out the door saying, “Wow, that guy really knows his stuff!” – my work doesn’t end there. I’m committed to long-term solutions for your pain. My support extends beyond your appointment.
I know a lot of people get a little queasy when it comes to the idea of surgery. However, if you’re living with pain brought on by an ingrown toenail, a surgical procedure is nearly always less painful than the original pain itself – and the relief you’ll feel will be well worth your time. Almost all ingrown toenail surgery, is done quickly under local anesthetic. Ingrown toenails can be a pest - always coming back to annoy your toes – I aim to stop it at it’s source so you can leave my practice without having to worry about the pain coming back
What Should I Know About the Procedure?
Like any minor surgery, you’ll be sure to notice it after your appointment. Generally, the most common sensations following ingrown toenail surgery is a little pain and discomfort for a day or two, but a Tylenol is usually enough to keep it from bothering you. You will be given a 24 hour direct phone line for any concerns. This is true for at least 95% of patients undergoing this procedure. We cant make guarantees and every person is different.
