A dead toenail is a surprisingly common problem, and surgery and toenail removal often may be necessary with an infection.
If you have a difficult-to-treat fungal nail infection, or if you have a suppressed immune system or diabetes, your podiatrist may recommend removal of the affected toenail to prevent the infection from spreading to other toenails or beyond your feet.

Toenail removal surgery is a minor procedure that removes either the entire toenail or a portion of the toenail that is diseased, damaged or very painful.
