Ingrown toenails or onychocryptosis, is a commonly encountered problem. It occurs for a variety of reasons and these days there is no need to suffer anymore. Relief from the discomfort of ingrown toenails can be managed with conservative treatment gently and simply by cutting away some of the nail. However treatment for serious ingrown nails or recurrent ingrown nails can be achieved with a simple and quick procedure, under local anaesthetic, called a PNA or Partial Nail Avulsion. The procedure involves the podiatrist removing a wedge of nail and cauterising the matrix(where the toenail grows from) to stop the nail growing back in that particular area. It often results with nail appearing slightly narrower that before the procedure  The appointment for the procedure is 1 hour and complete recovery would be expected within 4 to 6 weeks of the treatment.
