Nail Surgery

Our podiatrist/Chiropodist Suhaib, may recommend Nail surgery for people with infected, in-growing toenails or damaged, distorted thick nails that are causing pain and have not responded to conservative treatment. We often see people who have medical conditions that cause recurrent issues.

Nail surgery is carried out to provide permanent pain relief and/or preventing recurrent infections in problem toes. Occasionally, it is carried out for cosmetic reasons. Nail surgery involves removing part, or all of a problem toenail. If the whole nail is removed it is called a Total Nail Avulsion (TNA), if only part of the nail is removed, it is called a Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA).

It is usual for you to be assessed first, and an appointment made for surgery later. During the initial assessment, the podiatrist will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

They will carry out a careful examination of your toe(s) and will also assess your general health. They will ask questions to find out whether you are taking any medication, if you may be pregnant, have any blood disorders or phobias to ensure that you are suitable for surgery.

If you would like to come in to be assessed for treatment then please book in here.

Prices for Nail surgery start from £295.00
