Nail Surgery for Ingrown Toenails & Nail Removal

Nail Surgery for Ingrown Toenails:

Ingrown toenails often occur when the sharp corner or edge of a nail punctures the skin along the nail edge. Let’s face it; it’s not exactly the cleanest or most hygienic part of our body, so infection can easily set in. As the nail continues to grow and the infection becomes worse, a painful ingrown toenail can develop.

Also, often people can inherit Mum’s toe and Dad’s toenail which can lead to a mismatch, and may render them prone to recurrent ingrown toenails.

For the most part, ingrown toenails are easily managed conservatively. However, if an ingrown toenail is particularly bad or frequently recurring the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry are able to perform a gentle, permanent procedure to relieve the ingrown toenail.

If this is you, feel free to call us to speak with one of the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry to help you resolve your ingrown toenails.

Nail Removal:

There may be various reasons why partial or complete nail removal may be required. These are usually taken on a case-by-case basis. At Posture Podiatry, we will try everything at our disposal to avoid the need for surgery, however we are able to provide the permanent nail removal and sterilisation service if required.
