We know how it feels to have an ingrown toenail and the anxiety that comes with it. We at Carolina Foot Specialists have ways to lessen your anxiety. Our technique is a painless procedure which involves application of ethyl Chloride that freezes the skin and administration of a local anesthetic. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes in the office and is the most common procedure that our foot specialists perform. We see patients from the ages of 2 two 95 that suffer from this ailment. Typically most of our patients are back to normal activity within a few days. Options include a partial nail avulsion that allows the nail to grow back within 6 months or a permanent procedure that doesn't allow a small corner of the nail to grow back.

We at Carolina Foot Specialists want to let you know that we see a tremendous amount of children and adults with this diagnosis and understand first hand how to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Dr. Brown and Dr. Saffer both have had ingrown toenails as children and fortunately had positive expriences with treatment.
