The aim is to remove the abnormal nail and usually the nail bed too. If the nail only is removed, an abnormal nail will grow from the nail bed again. The way to do this operation depends on the problem. Wth ingrowing toenails only the narrow strips of the nail bed near the skin folds are to be removed. Severely thickened nails require the nail bed to be surgically removed with the help of chemicals.
