Nail Surgery 

Permanently resolve your ingrown toenail


We aim to resolve your ingrown toenail within 24 hours of contact

What treatments do we provide?

We provide the 'full' or 'partial' permanent removal of ingrown toenails. A partial nail removal involves taking a small portion of the offending nail off. Nail removal for fungal or damaged nails is also provided. 

What does nail surgery involve?

The procedure involves two injections of local anesthetic into the offending toe.


This is to completely numb your toe so you don't feel anything during the procedure.


Then either side or the entire nail will be removed.


A solution is rubbed into the base of the nail to prevent that part regrowing. 


The procedure usually takes around 35 minutes. The patient can resume normal activities the next day. Full healing takes 4-8 weeks where a small dressing is placed over the toe daily for the first two weeks.

The patient will walk in and walk out following the procedure. They are advised to put their feet up for the rest of the day. 

Who will perform the operation?

The procedure will be performed by a fully qualified podiatrist who is HCPC registered and a member of the Royal college of Podiatry with years of nail surgery experience both in private practice and the NHS.

What to expect

Upon entry to the clinic you will be asked to fill out a patient assessment form which will include any medications that you are taking or any allergies that you may have.

The podiatrist will inspect the toe and will discuss whether to remove only the sides of the nail (partial) or the entire nail. We aim to keep the toe as cosmetically pleasing as possible.

You will be injected twice into the offending toe with local anesthetic which usually takes 5 minutes to numb the toe.

Once the toe is completely numb a tourniquet is applied.

The portion of nail is then removed and phenol acid is rubbed into the nail bed to prevent that portion of nail growing back.

A large dressing is placed on the toe. It is advisable to bring flip flops / open shoes as the dressing is unlikely to fit in normal shoes. This dressing will only be in place for 24 hours.

Ideally go home and put your feet up for the rest of the day.

A partial nail removal usually takes 4-6 weeks and a full nail removal takes around 6-8 weeks.

Is it painful?

The initial injection is like a small pinch. The toe will remain numb for 2-3 hours. Most patients report a sense of relief once the anaesthetic wears off.

Will I be off my feet for long?

You will walk in and walk out of the clinic. Ideally go home and put your feet up for the rest of the day. People return to their normal activities the next day. Caution should be taken to avoid excess pressure to the toe during healing.

Will I be off work for long?

Ideally after the procedure put your feet up for the rest of the day. Most people return to work the next day. Its best to avoid any trauma or pressure to the toe during the healing phase.

Can I drive after my procedure?

It is advisable not to drive until the anesthetic has worn off. Ideally have someone who can drive you home afterwards.
