Ingrowing toenail & Nail Surgery
Ingrown toenails are a common problem and occur when the edge of the nail grows into the flesh at the side of the nail, causing pain and infection in some cases. The first line of treatment is done conservatively by removing a small section of the nail that is causing the problem and correcting the alignment, therefore re-aligning the nail growth.
It is a minimally invasive technique providing instant relief from pain and resolving infection without antibiotics.
Nail Surgery is recommended when an in-grown toenail repeatedly becomes painful or infected and when other conservative treatments have proved unsuccessful.
