Nail surgery is commonly done for 3 conditions – Nail fungal infections, Nail trauma and Ingrown Toe Nails, almost consisting about 50% of nail abnormalities. Already present on the body, the Ingrown toe nail os overgrows that eventually becomes a problem and surgery is the mainstay treatment.
We, at SkinQure under the supreme guidance of Dr. Jangid has been successfully treating patients coming to us with their nail-centric issues. Prominent in analysing the cause of the issue along with treating it with the best, available tool, people often end up asking several questions related to the real cause and the treatments available. Which is why Dr. Jangid pens down his own expertise, answering some common questions related to nail problems and treatments.
Here Dr. Jangid is explaining about the common nail conditions and Nail Surgery.
Emphasising from a Dermatologist point of view, Dr. Jangid explains that nail surgery means the removal of nail plate for some therapy purpose. He categorises the surgery into two types, namely –
- Complete nail removal – means removal of complete nail plate.
- Partial nail removal – means only lateral (side) part of nail is removed ( See in picture)
Partial nail removal is common surgery done for early stage of ingrown nail while complete removal of nail is preferred in fungal infection and late stage of ingrown nail.
Being an expert Dermatologist himself, Dr. Jangid elaborates that there are many nail diseases where you can be suggested to go for nail surgery, usually recommended as the main treatment. The common indications can include –
- Ingrown Toe Nails
- Fungal Infections of Nails
- Traumatic nail
- Pincer Nail – a condition in which nail is rounded from tip
Ingrown toe nail is a condition where the side margin of nails starts to grow inside the skin rather than growing straight. Thus, the nail eventually damages the skin, opening the chance for ulcer and recurrent infection to occur.
Nail removal surgery is a simple procedure that’s being offered to our patient who are suffering from nail-based issues. We, at SkinQure first numb the area after which the nail plate is removed from the base by pulling it off. The sides of nails are again destroyed by the usage of some acids, ensuring that only the center part of the nail grows in a normal manner.
