Is there any procedure or surgery for finger nail transplantation in my hand?


I have lost one of my nails on my right hand in an accident.  Is there any possibility of nail re-growth? If not, is nail transplantation possible?




 Yes, but you must rob from Peter to Pay Paul. The Nail bed can be transferred fro the large toe to the deficient nail to restore the nail bed. Hope this is of assistance. Best,


Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS
