Ingrown toe nails can be extremely painful. It's amazing how something so small can cause so much pain. Some ingrown toe nails can be conservatively managed with regular Podiatry care. However, if they are constantly getting infected, re-occurring too often or causing too much pain, a partial nail avulsion or nail surgery is a quick and easy solution.
We perform this surgery in our clinic under local anaesthesia. We take a small slither of nail from the base of the nail bed and apply a chemical called phenol to prohibit that small slither of nail from growing back. It's a quick procedure; finished in under an hour. We get great results from this surgery which allows you to get back on your feet faster, doing the things you love - pain free!
