What is Nail Surgery?

Nail surgery, also known as nail avulsion or nail removal surgery, is a medical procedure performed to treat various nail disorders or injuries. It involves the partial or complete removal of a nail, usually from the fingers or toes. This type of surgery is commonly indicated for conditions such as ingrown toenails, severe nail infections, trauma to the nail, or nail deformities caused by fungal infections or other medical conditions.

Types of Nail Surgery :

  1. Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA): Only a portion of the nail is removed. This is often done to relieve pain and inflammation from an ingrown nail.
  2. Total Nail Avulsion (TNA): The entire nail is removed. This may be necessary for extensive infections, trauma, or when the nail is causing significant pain or deformity.

Indications for Nail Surgery :

  • Ingrown Toenails: When the edges of the nail grow into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling, and infection.
  • Fungal Infections: Severe or resistant fungal infections that do not respond to topical or oral treatments.
  • Trauma: Injuries that damage the nail bed or cause the nail to become deformed.
  • Tumors or Growths: Abnormal growths under or around the nail that require surgical removal.
