Nail Surgery

An ingrown toenail (Onychocryptosis) is a nail that has pierced the adjacent skin of the toe causing pain and inflammation and in more severe cases infection. Surgery may be required when an ingrown toenail repeatedly gets infected, is continually painful, the sufferer is unable to wear shoes or the condition inhibits work, sporting or other activities.

Surgical procedure is a partial nail avulsion, which is performed in the clinic under local anaesthetic. It is a non-invasive procedure which enables the patient to walk immediately afterwards. This procedure is usually permanent resulting in complete resolution of the condition and any future episodes.
