Nail surgery is the permanent removal of a problematic nail/piece of nail, the area is treated with a chemical (phenol) to prevent regrowth and has a 90-95% success rate.
The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic and a tight band is used (tourniquet) to prevent any bleeding. You feel pressure and movement during the procedure, but no pain. There is no cutting or stitching involved and complete healing normally takes four to ten weeks.
When you have Nail Surgery with us, the price includes the Surgery, a Dressing Pack and follow up appointments.
Advantages of Nail Surgery
- You will get less pain/discomfort from the toe.
- You will have less risk of toe infection, once you have healed from the surgery.
- You will be able to wear a wider choice of footwear.
After surgery, you are back on your feet straight away, but we advise reduced activity for the initial 2 weeks, so as to encourage healing.
