Ingrown Toenail Surgery

See important booking notes for this service.

We provide comprehensive care for foot-related ailments, including expert treatment for ingrown toenails.

Ingrown toenails can be painful and debilitating, but with the right treatment, we can help you find relief and prevent future complications.  Our state-of-the-art clinic is dedicated to offering you the highest standard of medical care in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of the toenail grows into the skin of the toe. This can cause pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection. While ingrown toenails can affect any toe, they most commonly occur on the big toe.

Causes and Symptoms

Ingrown toenails can result from various factors, including improper toenail trimming, tight footwear, injury, or genetic predisposition. Symptoms typically include tenderness along the nail edge, swelling, redness, and in severe cases, pus drainage indicating an infection.

Our Approach to Treatment

At Ponsonby Doctors, we understand the discomfort and inconvenience caused by ingrown toenails. Our approach to treatment includes:

  • Assessment: A thorough examination of the affected toe to determine the severity of the ingrown toenail and any signs of infection.
  • Conservative Treatment: For less severe cases, treatments may involve advice on proper nail care, soaking the foot to reduce swelling, and prescribing antibiotics if an infection is present.
  • Surgical Options: For more severe cases or recurrent ingrown toenails, surgical intervention may be necessary. Our skilled team performs minimally invasive procedures to remove the ingrown portion of the nail under local anesthesia. This procedure is quick, with most patients experiencing immediate relief and a fast recovery.

Post-Surgery Care and Prevention

After surgery, we provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. Tips for preventing future ingrown toenails include proper nail trimming techniques, wearing appropriately fitting shoes, and regular foot hygiene.
