Ingrown toenails occur when the side of the nail grows into the skin around it, causes pain, tenderness & swelling. They may also become infected.

Ingrown toenails are very common and can occur in any toe. The big toe is most commonly affected.

For most clients a simple procedure can relieve the pain from ingrown toenails without the need for surgery. However, if ingrown toenails are recurrent your Podiatrist may recommend Ingrown Toenail Surgery.

What is Ingrown Toenail Surgery?

This minor surgical procedure involves the removal of a small part of the side of the nail, followed by the application of a chemical which prevents that small section of the nail from regrowing. 

The procedure is performed at our Foot Faults clinics, and takes approximately one hour.

Local anaesthetic is used to ensure the procedure is pain free. The method used by our expert Podiatrists has been shown in studies to be the most effective, with up to a 97% success rate.
