How is nail surgery carried out?

Nail surgery is a simple procedure that is carried out under local anaesthesia by numbing the toe with a local anaesthetic. This involves an injection to numb the toe, once the toe is numb, I will surgically and carefully remove the ingrown section of the nail. The next and the last step involves the treatment of the nail bed. When the surgery is done, I will give advice on how to protect the nail whilst it heals.

With over 30 years as a Podiatrist, I have looked after numerous patients who have had anxiety issues regarding injections, if this is you, then I can provide measures to help, please just let me know.

Some common causes that lead to ingrown nails are:
  • Incorrectly Cut Toenails
  • Shoe Pressure
  • Toes Crowding
  • Heredity
  • Picking, Biting or Peeling
Don't Suffer in Silence!

If left untreated, an ingrown nail is not only painful but can also cause infections. Nail surgery is a simple surgical process to help solve this issue. Don't suffer in silence, contact me. I can provide you with an appropriate solution. I offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments that may help prevent the uneven growth of nails and consequently minimise the chances of it occurring again.
