Ingrown toenails are surprisingly common and occur for a variety of reasons including poor nail cutting technique, narrow fitting shoes, infections or even genetics.
The Birmingham Podiatry Clinic is pleased to offer a permanent solution to ingrown toenail problems. Nail surgery is a minor surgical procedure to remove all or part of your toenail.
If you are a SELF FUNDING patient you will be covered by the Birmingham Podiatry Clinic Nail Surgery Guarantee, meaning we will undertake a second procedure, at no cost to you, assuming that you have not developed a clinical contra-indication to the procedure.
Ingrown toenail surgery is a relatively routing procedure which our Chiropodists can carry out quickly and painlessly. We will always discuss your options at your consultation to ensure we answer any of your questions.
Ingrowing toenails occur when the nail begins to grow and cut into the surrounding skin. It most often affects the big toe.
We numb the area with a local anaesthetic and remove the ingrowing toenail without any pain to you. The area is then cleansed to make sure the nail does not regrow and your toenail is dressed for your follow up appointment.
We advise that you DO NOT drive. Therefore it is better to have someone who can pick you up and safely take you home after the procedure.
There may be slight discomfort when we remove the nail but as we numb the area first it should not be too painful. If you have any anxiety or concerns please speak to our trained Chiropodist who will assist further.
It will take at least 3-4 weeks for your toe to recover back to normal. You will have follow up appointments to check the condition of your toenail and for the Chiropodist to give you further advice on taking care of your feet.
