Who specializes in fingernail removal?
I read somewhere that a podiatrist could remove fingernails as well as toenails.
The surgical removal (ablation) of the fingernail or toenail is referred to as an Onychectomy or onychotomy. Hopefully the nail will regrow in a normal fashion. When part or all of the nail bed (matrix) is removed, whether through surgery or chemical means, the procedure is called a Matrisectomy or matrixectomy. This permanently prevents the nail from regrowing.
