Getting Ingrown Toenails Removed

ingrown toenail treatment dallas txThe world renowned fashion week in Milan finished up just a few weeks ago with many new young designers and hot trends having hit the runways. It is always interesting to see the footwear that makes its debut – this time it was the high-heeled, pointed-toe open back mule that took center stage.

Wearing any type of tight, pointed shoe for a length of time can put you at risk for an ingrown toenail. This is when the toenail curves and grows into the surrounding skin. Trimming your toenails too short or curved can also cause one to develop. When one occurs, it can turn into a red, swollen, painful and often infected problem. At this point, it is necessary for experts such as Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt to step in and bring your nail back to health.

When an ingrown toenail needs to be removed

There are several home remedies and lifestyle changes that can take care of this problem in the beginning stages, but when it progresses into a more serious condition, you may need to have part of the nail removed. While this may sound scary, our doctors and staff will walk you through each step of the way. It is a minor procedure done in our office under local anesthetic. A small portion of the affected nail is removed and the nail root is destroyed, which permanently fixes your ingrown toenail problem. Our patients are typically able to resume all of their normal activities within a few weeks time.

An ingrown toenail can quickly progress and tends to recur if not treated properly. Please contact Dallas Podiatry Works as soon as symptoms are noticed. If you have one that has become red, painful and infected, do not wait to seek treatment, especially if you have an underlying condition such as diabetes. To make an appointment, call our office in Dallas, TX at (972) 566-7474 or in Plano, TX at (972) 943-3323.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star all h
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
