      Corrective Nail Surgery:
      For the treatment of Ingrowing Toenails. This involves a minor surgical procedure carried out under Local Anaesthetic to alleviate the pain and misery of Ingrowing Toenails.

      • First, a detailed questionnaire is completed to assess suitability for use of Local Anaesthetic and likely outcome re: Healing
      • Under Local Anaesthetic, the side/s of the nail that are ingrowing are removed. A chemical called Phenol is applied to the nail matrix to prevent regrowth. The advantage of this process is that, cosmetically, a nail remains that is visible but comfortable.
      • The patient is seen for weekly re-dressings until healing is complete. This usually takes approximately 1 month from start to finish, but times may vary according to the individual patient.
