Nail Surgery will be recommended when regular treatment and maintenance of an ingrown toe nail is no longer enough to keep the pain at bay.  Our Podiatrists are experienced at removing either a small part, or the whole of a problem nail.  The actual surgery will take about an hour, and we recommend you relax the rest of the day and, if possible, keep the foot elevated.  Recovery varies with each patient, but generally the toe should be healed and no need for further dressings by 4 weeks post surgery.
