In cases of painful recurring ingrown toe nails, permanent surgical correction may be indicated. This is often the case when the width or excessively curved nature of the nail is thought to be a primary contributing factor. The preferred procedure at East Gosford Podiatry is a ‘Partial Nail Avulsion’.
Under local aesthetic a small portion of the nail is removed, offering a permanent solution to the painful ingrown nail without compromising the aesthetic look of the nail. This minor procedure is performed in our consultation rooms at East Gosford in a sterile surgical environment. Assessment of your relevant medical history and foot health will allow us to advise whether this procedure is appropriate for you. We will also be able to discuss the procedure with you in greater detail, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
“Many people are simply put off by the term ‘surgery’. Where conservative, non surgical management has had limited success on recurring ingrown nails, this simply procedure can be a real game changer. To be pain free, have better looking toe nails, and to save money by not needing as frequent Podiatry visits, talk to a Podiatrist now and discuss your options.” Andrew Martin, Podiatrist
