Nail Surgery for Ingrown toenail

If your Ingrown nail is persistent or fails to settle with a simple treatment a minor nail surgery may be recommended by your Podiatrist.

Nail surgery is a good long term solution, particularly in cases where the nail shape or width is the reason for the problem.

This minor surgery, performed in the clinic, involves a local anaesthetic, removal of a portion of the nail and the application of a chemical to cauterise that section of the nail ensuring it does not grow back.
