The podiatrist has a university education that allows him to perform minor surgeries in private practice. He or she can treat an ingrown nail with a simple surgery to remove the offending edge of the nail. Following this procedure, the patient is permanently relieved since the remaining nail grows normally and the side of the nail that entered the pulp no longer grows back. This changes little or nothing in the appearance of the nail on the toe.

About this treatment

The podiatrist may also perform a biopsy to analyze a lesion that seems suspicious. Always under local anesthesia, the sample is taken, which may or may not require stitches depending on the technique used. In all cases of surgery, the podiatrist from the Clinique de Podiatrie Montarville ensures a regular and diligent follow-up of his patients. He accompanies the patient in the healing process which is often easy and requires a minimum of care at home.
