About this Service
We offer comprehensive foot and ankle care that includes ingrown nail surgery. Our experienced podiatrists specialise in diagnosing and treating ingrown toenails, a common condition that can cause pain, inflammation, and infection if left untreated.
Ingrown toenails occur when the edges of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin, causing discomfort and sometimes leading to infection. In some cases, conservative treatments such as retraining the nail using onyfix or changing footwear may be enough to relieve symptoms. However, in more severe cases, ingrown nail surgery may be necessary to permanently remove the offending portion of the nail and prevent recurrence.
Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful, and stop us from performing at our best. A Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA) surgery fixes ingrown toenails that have become problematic, piercing the skin and becoming extremely painful. We perform the surgery in our clinic under local anaesthetic. The actual surgery takes less than 30 minutes, with the patient being able to walk out of the clinic. No special footwear is required afterwards, or extra down time, allowing the patient to continue on with their normal life.
We provide you with all necessary dressings and instructions, and book an aftercare appointment a few days following to remove the bandages and teach you how to look after your new nail.
If you require Nail surgery, we do not offer this as a book online option as an initial consultation is required before having nail surgery. During the initial consultation, we will discuss whether nail surgery is the right option for you as well as run you through the procedure in detail.
