About Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is an uncomfortable and often painful condition where the corner of your toenail grows into the side of your toe beneath the skin. This condition can occur for a wide range of reasons, including little to no routine trimming of the toenail, trimming an excessively large section of the nail, poorly administered pedicures, trauma, and wearing shoes that are too tight. Although there are multiple home remedies that you can implement, the most effective solution to ingrown toenails is to see a podiatrist from Ankle & Foot Centers of America.

Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails can occur to individuals of all ages, generally affecting the big toe but sometimes occurring on other toes as well. Symptoms commonly include pain, redness, swelling, and occasional drainage and/or odor on the side of the affected toe. Solutions such as trimming – referred to as “bathroom surgery” – and antibiotics may provide temporary relief, yet they do not eliminate the underlying problem and symptoms tend to persist.

As your local podiatrist, we are proud to offer a simple on-office procedure to not only permanently relieve the pain but also to prevent the problem from reoccurring. The procedure, spanning a mere 5 minutes or less, involves a removal of the damaged nail with an 80-90% success rate. Upon completion of the healing process, the appearance of the toe undergoes a minor cosmetic alteration for optimal results.

I've posted a review a few times and can't seem to find them! Dr. Monaco is by far the best podiatrist there is! I had been seeing another podiatrist in Columbus, who'd done 3 surgeries, all 3 messing my foot up worse, with the 3rd one leaving my first and second toes in the shape of a peace sign! I was constantly told by the previous podiatrist that everything was fine and lined up the way it was supposed to be. I had my first surgery with Dr. Monaco in August and it was the best decision I've made! She is by far the best! Truly compassionate about what she does! Very knowledgeable! Truly cares about her patients! If you're in need of a podiatrist give Dr. Monaco q call! ❤️

I was very impressed with Dr. Monaco this was my first visit. All the office staff was so nice as well as my nurse. I had came to Dr Monaco after being very unhappy with the prior Dr I had seen for my ankle injury. Dr. Monaco was very through with her exam and I think I finally got a good idea of what my issue is. Although I do need some further imaging test. Overall I am so glad I decided to see her, I didn't feel rushed at all and she answered all my questions. I'm sure I will have several more visits with her and overall I am well pleased. I highly recommend her to anyone who's having any foot or ankle issues.
