Subungual exostosis- is an overgrowth of bone along the dorsal aspect of the distal phalanx, the bone that sits under the toenail plate. A subungual exostosis can cause severe curvature of the nail plate which can lead to pain, onychocryptosis and infected ingrown toenails. Pain associated with a subungual exostosis can be addressed by padding the toe, removing the exostosis and/or the toenail plate.
Dr. Eric Silvers is a highly-trained foot and ankle surgeon specializing in the treatment and resolution of toenail pathologies.
