Ingrown toenails are one of the most common conditions seen by podiatrists. Contrary to popular belief, most are actually caused by genetics. In the clinic it is not uncommon to see entire families present with issues. Treatment options we provide in the clinic range from toe spacers, to resection of a small spicule or an offending corner of the nail. We also perform a permanent procedure which has a 97% success rate with local anaesthetic administered in the chair. This treatment option in particular is ideal for chronic sufferers.
