Laser Lasers can also permanently resolve nail problems. Proponents suggest there is less post-operative discharge and less pain involved when lasers are used, but it has been my experience that when performed correctly, there is very little pain involved with most other procedures anyway. In Canada, lasers are used relatively infrequently for this indication because of their high cost.
Radiosurgery Radiosurgical techniques can also be used to permanently resolve nail problems. Much less expensive than lasers, radiosurgery offers the same benefit, namely less discharge postoperatively.
