: I have pretty pervasive toenail fungus in both my big toenails. I've researched the prescription alternatives and have used Penlac, but I think I'd rather just have them permanently removed. I spend a lot of time in water, and I don't want to deal with recurrence. My insurance company says that's elective surgery & will only pay for the prescriptions. I don't have the patience for the medication cycles & not thrilled with success rates.
: So, what would your office typically charge for permanent removal of both big toenails? I ready to have this finished, & I don't care about the post-surgical cosmetics of my feet. Thanks in advance...
Hi Josh, do your toenails hurt you? Usually pain would be criteria for your insurance to pay.
That being said, the usual charge in this area is $300 - 400 for each nail. In our office, we give a 50% discount for the second nail if done on the same day.
