Wedge Resection (Ingrown Toenail)
Ingrown toenails are painful and uncomfortable. The nail grows into the skin, causing inflammation and or infection. A wedge resection is a procedure where a section of ingrown nail is removed, altering the nail bed and preventing any nail regrowth in that section. Your nail will grow out narrower than it did before.
