Nailbed Injuries

Crush injures to the fingertips from common accidents such as smashes in car doors or house doors, worksite or sports injuries are frequently undertreated. Unappreciated damage to the tissue below the nail, the nailbed, can lead to permanent deformities of future nail growth.
Prompt and proper surgical repair of nailbed injuries by a hand specialist can avoid both functional and cosmetic long term nail problems. Surgical replacement of any avulsed nail back into its position in the cuticle fold is very important to help aid in new nail regrowth.
