Nail Surgery

If you’ve had ongoing issues with ingrowing/unsightly nails or a fungal infection that won’t leave then you may request nail surgery. It is a very simple procedure performed under a local anaesthetic where we remove all or a section of the nail, often with the introduction of an ablation chemical to prevent the nail returning.

A full discussion regarding the process, ongoing care and a health check will need to take place before any treatment commences, this would take place at an initial assessment.

Please be aware you will not be insured to drive following the appointment (that day) and we advise full rest with an elevated leg for 24 hours post surgery to promote good quality healing.

We will see you again 2-4 days post surgery for a dressing change and review, after this most are able to self manage. Dressings will be given and antibiotics supplied if necessary.
