Toenail surgery is a procedure performed under local anaesthetic meaning there is very little discomfort.
Ingrown nails, deformed or thick nails & painful nail conditions.
In the case of an ingrowing toenail, a small section is removed from the side of the toenail under local anaesthetic. This is called a Partial Nail Avulsion, and a chemical called Phenol is applied which prevents the piece of nail from regrowing. In some cases, the whole toenail may need to be removed, this is called a Total Nail Avulsion.
Normally 4-6 weeks if you follow aftercare advice and this healing time is normally no different whether you've had a section of nail or the whole nail removed.
