If you get recurring ingrown or infected toenails, the local Pittsburgh Podiatrists at Beaver Valley Foot Clinic have a simple 5 minute office procedure to permanently kill ingrown toenails at the root of the problem! With locations including foot clinics Moon Township, Cranberry, Ambridge and Beaver foot doctors offices, we can conveniently offer same day appointments to get you out of pain quickly and easily.

Ingrown toenail permanent border removal (matrixectomy)

We lightly numb the toe near the ingrown toenail, so you don’t feel a thing. Then using a bluntly protected nail clipper that is specially designed to protect your nail bed { unlike express clinics and primary physicians offices} just a few millimeters of the ingrown nail border are removed. (Never let anyone remove your whole nail -unless you don’t want it to ever come back normally) then using a small q-tip dipped in a special solution, the root of the ingrowing nail is permanently killed, with out hurting your surrounding skin. This is then flushed out with a neutralizing solution and wrapped up with antibiotic ointment and gauze, and you are back into your shoes immediately! Over the next few weeks you are encouraged to soak your toe or shower and rinse with warm water, and cover it with antibiotic ointment and a band-aid.

That’s it! No more ingrown toenail! (with a 90%+ effectiveness, this is our most popular permanent ingrown toenail treatment at our Pittsburgh foot clinics) risks of infection are minimized by following our good post op instructions
