Nail surgery is suitable for those suffering from painful ingrowing toenails. This procedure is a long term solution that stops the ingrowing toenail recurring. Nail surgery uses local anesthetic to numb the toe prior to surgery which makes it a painless procedure. Depending on the severity of the problem the nail will either be partially or fully removed. A chemical solution is then applied to the problem area allowing the nail to grow back correctly.
After the nail surgery has been completed we provide you with all the information you will need with regards to the aftercare of your nail. A follow up appointment will be booked on the day of your surgery and is included in the price of the treatment. The purpose of the follow up appointment is for the podiatrist to check on the progress of the nail and apply a fresh dressing.
