We love ingrown toenails! You may not, but we do. One of the reasons is treating it is so satisfying for the patient. You often walk out after the first visit feeling much improved.
In fact we love ingrown toenails so much we have established dedicated resources just to managing them. Making painful toenails is a dedicated topic of interest for the clinic.
Ingrown toenails are often painful and difficult to manage. Often people are afraid of getting them treated. The fear often exists because people think that treating it is more painful than ‘putting up with it’. It doesn’t have to be.
Here, we go through all the available ways of managing your painful toenail and discuss your options first.
There are many ways to manage your painful toenail and not all of it involves surgery.
What if it is really bad?!
That is ok. If nail surgery is required then we can walk you through that process too.
We have a dedicated theatre, nursing staff and general practitioners available to cover every scenario.
Do I need antibiotics?
Fortunately, if you do need antibiotics then we can organise a script for you at your appointment and those details can be discussed at length with you on the day.
