I have a bone spur behind my fingernail on my left index finger,  can this be cut out as an out patient at my doc's office?

How do you know that's a bone spur?

If my finger looked like that, I'd cut it off... at the elbow.

X-ray a couple years ago. It's starting to bug me at work and when I'm shooting pistols left handed.

Edit to add: Also I can't pick my nose with it, won't fit!!

Your fingernail is filthy.

Discuss it with an ortho surgeon. Don't be afraid to ask the surgeon what they would do if it was their finger.

Do you have any other joints that are inflamed or any other bone spurs? If so, might want to ask about some tests for TNF and rheumatoid factor.

Go see an orthopedic surgeon, preferably one who did a hand fellowship. They can get it all taken care of for you.

No. A surgeon may be willing to do it with a nerve block to that arm, in a surgery center or hospital, with an anesthesiologist available in case the block does not work.
