Ingrown toenails can develop by wearing shoes that are too tight or too small, cutting your toenails incorrectly, or even genetics. The degree of your ingrown toenail will determine the type of treatment that you require. Some people can experience relief by visiting our San Jose, CA podiatry clinic and having toenails cut properly, so over time, they stop causing irritation. However, others need to visit our podiatrist office for nail surgery and matricectomy. This is where Leonard Greenwald, D.P.M. removes a portion or all of the nail so it can grow back in properly. To visit a 95133 foot doctor for ingrown toenails treatment, call (408) 827-9483.
