Current concepts in nail surgery
from Podiatry Today
Whether it is a partial nail avulsion for an ingrown toenail or performing a shave biopsy of a pigmented lesion at the nail matrix, nail surgery procedures are among the more common procedures we perform as podiatrists. Prior to performing any toenail procedure, it is imperative to examine and obtain the consent of the patient. Patients should present free of nail polish or other adornments on the affected foot. When it comes to ingrown toenails, note the level of pain as well as the presence of infection, erythema, edema, granulation tissue and drainage.
