Patient Review

I've been here 3 or 4 times now each time seeing Dr. Rowe, (apologies if I spelt the name wrong!) Anyway, after having gone to a previous podiatrist who gave me nerve issues with my toe I was very nervous about getting the same procedure done. Dr. Rowe was straight to the point and explained everything very thorough. Her method of the ingrown toenail procedure was far better than any other podiatrist I've gone to. She did my procedures 3 separate occasions and each time I got a better result. My healing time was much faster with her methods as well. My last visit was this week hopefully my last cuz man they hurt! Anyway, we did the procedure one more time and I have to say a big thank you! This has been the fastest and painless healing I've had yet! Definitely recommend Dr. Rowe, her work is great!


Antibiotics or Steroid Creams can help prevent infections. See a Podiatrist if the pain continues or you find it difficult to walk because of the ingrown toenail.



If an infection occurs, you may need surgery. Stop

at-home treatments and see one of our Podiatrists at Valley Foot & Ankle Specialty Providers. 

Types of Surgical Procedures


Wedge Resection

Wedge Resection is also known as a Partial Nail Avulsion. This is a procedure that involves partially removing the toenail. It helps prevent the nail from going into the skin.
