REMOVAL OF INGROWN TOENAIL
Hi, can you advise if a podiatrist would remove ingrown toenails in his surgery, and if so what the procedure would be.

Many thanks

Di, if it really requires surgery, the best would be to see an orthopaedic surgeon. I doubt that it will need surgery and then the podiatrist might be able to help you as letting it grow out is a much better option than having surgery. Good luck.
