Subungal exotosis is a bony projection, or bone spur, that forms underneath the big toenail. It usually occurs on the big toe as a result of injury or trauma such as crushing the toe. Subungal extoses are painful because the affected area on the outside of the big toe is subjected to pressure from walking and footwear. Surgical removal of the projection is usually recommended and necessary. Enchondromas also develop in the bone underneath the toenail; these are small, benign growths composed of cartilage.
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.

I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.

Still want more feedback on numbness, but understand waiting. Ingrown nail procedure was the 5th I’ve had, and the first that was 100% pain free. Doctor was thorough, answered all my questions politely, and gave me some confidence this would all go away on its own. Glad I chose this place.
