Nail Surgery – ingrowing or painful thick nails

A common condition that I see which can be resolved with surgery.

Ingrowing or painful nails have a number of causes; shape of the nail, ill fitting shoes or trauma are some of the reasons that the condition arises.

A brief assessment is performed and anaesthetic is used to extract the problem nail. Post surgery, the toe must be kept clean and a dressing applied daily.
