Ingrown Toenail Treatment at Our Calgary Clinic

Ingrown toenails are a common and painful condition. Ingrown toenails generally affect the large toe but no toe is exempt. Signs and symptoms can consist of redness, swelling, pain, and sometimes infection. Ingrown toenails occur when the nail becomes trapped in the skin on either side of the toe and they occur for a variety of reasons including injury, heredity, improper cutting, and improper footwear.

At North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic, we offer ingrown nail treatment in Calgary. The procedure performed for ingrown toenails involves the use of a local anesthetic to "freeze" the toe, removal of the ingrown portion of the toenail and application of a medicine called phenol to stop the growth of that portion of the nail. For a small percentage of the time the entire nail must be removed. The procedure is generally painless, highly effective, and you can return to normal activities soon afterwards.

Swollen Toes?

Avoid pain, and get checked and treated for ingrown nails.
