TOENAIL SURGERY Ridgewood podiatrist gives foot information on toenail surgery.
Sometimes toenails need to be excised. There are different techniques used to excise toenails.
After excising a toenail please consider the need for a footbiopsy
To stop the bleeding sometimes a compression bandage can be used, but please tell your podiatrist
or dermatologist or physician if you have any bleeding disorders before such surgery is undertaken.
Also after such toenail surgery, there is a need for a patient to wear propper shoes and propper foot
orthotics. This is especially true for diabetics when they put on their diabetic shoes to be sure that
the shoes are not too tight and that they fit propperly.
