Understanding your background

Ingrown toenails as well as other nail deformities like involution (excessive curvature of the nail), onychauxis (excessive thickening of the nail) and onychomycosis (fungal infection) can become chronic and debilitating conditions causing significant pain and put you at increased risk of infection. If you are experiencing these problems, an assessment with us can help you decide if nail surgery is right for you. This procedure is performed regularly in our clinic for people of all ages.


strategies for improvement

After an initial assessment where we gather a thorough medical history to ensure you are an appropriate candidate for nail surgery, we will discuss the options available to you which may include partial or total removal of one or more nails depending on your individual circumstances. For the procedure, you are first given a local anaesthetic for the affected toe(s) to ensure the surgery is completely pain-free. Once the offending piece(s) of nail has been removed, a compound known as phenol is applied to the nail matrix (the area of cells where new nail is made) so as to stop the nail from growing back.


getting you back on your feet

Once the procedure is over, we apply a sterile dressing to your toe and arrange a follow-up appointment to then remove and redress your toe and then supply you with additional dressings and instructions on how to care for your toe(s) at home. We remain on hand throughout the healing process to give you any advice or additional assistance you may require and look forward to providing you with a permanent solution for this painful problem.
