I'm not sure I would classify it as surgery since the podiatrist only used novacane to numb my big toe. It's a simple procedure to remove part of your toenail along the edge to prevent ingrown nails. In the interest of furthering the public knowledge I was planning on taking a video of the procedure. He didn't seem keen on it, so instead I found a video on YouTube.
Please note this is not my toe.
Also please note this video is graphic in nature and should only be viewed by people who can handle live surgery.
