What are Nail Bed Injuries?

Most people have caught their finger in a door or accidentally crushed it with a tool like a hammer. That kind of trauma is what causes nail bed injuries. For most people, the damage is minor, and no treatment is needed. But for other, more severe cases, a nail bed injury can require medical intervention, particularly if the nail is destroyed or the trauma affects tendon or bone.

Dr. John H. Miller at Apogee Plastic Surgery in Biloxi is board-certified to work with nail bed injuries. If you are suffering from trauma that is not only painful, but unflattering to look at, contact Dr. Miller at his Biloxi office today. He will be happy to assist patients from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities.

How are Nail Bed Injuries Treated?

When Dr. Miller provides treatment to his nail bed injury patients, his focus is to restore the nail to its original anatomy and function. To that end, Dr. Miller may recommend the following:

  • Simple hematomas: A small puncture in the nail drains fluid and releases pressure.
  • Bone or tendon injury: Fragments or damaged pieces may need pinning or splinting.
  • Missing nail or finger parts: Skin grafts may be taken from the same finger or different digits.

Am I a Good Candidate for Nail Bed Injuries Treatment?

Any medical treatment or procedure is always a personal choice. During your consultation, Dr. Miller will help you make the right decision for your individual needs. Treatment for a nail bed injury may be a good fit if you have had trauma to your fingertip that resulted in any of the following:

  • Painful collection of blood (hematoma) under the fingernail
  • Sharp cuts, particularly if they reach tendon or bone
  • Fingernail that is cracked into pieces
  • Loss of a nail or fingertip
  • Fractured bone

Dr. Miller has experienced these concerns with patients from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities. Treatment at Apogee Plastic Surgery can help ease the discomfort of a nail bed injury and help your fingertips look appealing once more.
