Nail Surgery

Our Podiatrist are fully HCPC qualified and are experienced in providing nail surgery.


Nail surgery is a common and effective treatment for painful ingrown toe nails. It may also be used as a means of treatment for thickened, damaged, abnormally curved or fungal infected nail problems.


The procedure itself is performed after administration of local anaesthetic to the affected digit. Once anaesthesia is achieved it will not wear off for up to two hours.


The podiatrist will operate under strict sterilization procedure to reduce your risk of infection.


The offending portion of nail will be gently lifted and trimmed away without the need to surgically cut any flesh. This will assist in a speedy recovery.


The procedure is a simple nail wedge resection and matrix sterilization with phenol. This is an in office procedure which is usually carried out in less than 30 minutes and is performed under a local anesthetic. After the ingrown nail is removed, the growth plate (matrix) is destroyed using phenol, a chemical designed to stop the nail growing back. This procedure does not involve any cutting of skin or stitches, and recovery time is very short. In most cases it is a fairly pain free experience with people able to resume normal activity the next day.


Once completely healed the nail will look normal, just slightly narrower than previously.



If you have any concerns about ingrown toenails, require any further information please contact us.
