Ingrown toenail surgery
What does nail surgery involve?
To simplify what we do during surgery...
We use a pre op wipe to cleanse the toe, then give a local anaesthetic at the base of the toe, making the whole of the toe numb.
Then apply a tourniquet & we remove part or the whole of the nail that is causing the problem. We then apply a chemical to the nail bed area to destroy the nail producing cells. Remove the tourniquet, apply a dressing to the wound, advise you how to care for the wound at home and arrange your redressing appointments.
And that is it... put simply.... :)
Things to note:
- On your initial consultation we take a full medical history in order to be sure that nail surgery is the most suitable solution to your ingrowing toenail.
- Please note it is not necessary to fast before this procedure.
Partial or full nail surgery of one nail + 3 weeks worth of dressings + 3 re-dressing appointments.
Cost - £300
