Ingrown Toenail Surgery
A minor surgical procedure to permanently remove ingrown toenails. It involves local anaesthetic and phenolisation. The toe is anaesthetised and either part of the nail or the whole nail is removed.
A chemical called phenol is applied to prevent regrowth and the toe is dressed. The procedure has a high success rate of 95%, generally painless with a small risk of complications. This care package includes review appointments and aftercare to full healing is achieved.

It is generally pain free and a very safe procedure.
Common conditions treated:

- Achilles tendonitis
- Knee pain
- Ankle stiffness
- Shin splints

Additionally, it can be used on ‘trigger points’ within muscles.
Trigger points are knots in the muscle that weaken the muscle and prevent full lengthening. Needling these points aim to relieve the muscle tension, therefore strengthening the muscle for better performance. Acupuncture can be used as an individual treatment or in conjunction with other remedies for maximum results in patient care.
