Nail Surgery

Sometimes with conservative care the nail unfortunately continues to ingrow. If this is the case the Podiatrist will advise on nail surgery. This treatment is carried out in the clinic under a local anaesthetic and the offending piece of nail is removed.

The area is then cauterized and bandaged and dressed. Most people experience little pain after surgery and can return to normal activity the following day. Follow up appointments are carried out to ensure the area has healed well
