Not all in-growing toenails need to be surgically removed. However, when they do, we are well equipped to perform the procedure. We guide you through the procedure step-by-step before proceeding, and your questions are not only welcome, but encouraged.
No referral is necessary, and there is no need for a general anaesthetic. Nail surgery is performed under local anaesthetic, where the offending piece of nail is then removed painlessly. We then use a small amount of a chemical called phenol to prevent the nail growing back.
We allow for 2-3 follow up appointments free of charge to re-dress the toe, and follow up on the procedure.
If you think you may need an in-grown toenail procedure, please call for an appointment today.
