Nail Surgery

Occasionally nails become problematic and dig into the skin or ’in grow’.

Some nails are thickened, and others curve in at the edges. These can cause the nail and area around the nail to become very painful and can sometimes cause infections around the nail. Nail Surgery is a simple procedure where the nail or a small part of the nail can be removed permanently. This means that we remove the problematic section of the nail using local anaesthetic and apply a chemical to that area to prevent the problem occurring again.

This procedure can take place at your local Shuropody clinic and takes approximately one hour.
