Innovative care for toenail concerns
Toenails are easy to neglect, tricky to reach and prone to problems that can be painful and embarrassing. At Footworks Podiatry, we have a wealth of experience in treating all sorts of nails problems from ingrown toenails to fungal nail infections – so you can be certain you’re in safe hands.
Clearanail – Nail Fungus Treatment
We like to keep ahead of results-based, cutting-edge treatments and have added Clearanail to our services. By safely and painlessly drilling minuscule holes into the nail plate, the procedure enables topical anti-fungal treatments to reach the nail bed in far higher concentrations. Results are quicker and there’s no damage to surrounding skin.*
Surgery for Ingrown Toenails
Ingrowing toenails can often be treated by carefully trimming the nail. But if the nail is extremely ingrown we may need to need to carry out minor surgery known as partial nail avulsion. We’ll use local anaesthetic to numb your toe before cutting away the edges of the nail and treating it with phenol to prevent the nail from growing back.
Wilde-Pedique Nail Reconstruction
We can restore thickened and damaged toenails with Wilde Pedique – an elastic UV gel which moulds to your natural nail impression to reconstruct missing parts of your nail. This looks like a normal healthy toe nail while your existing nail grows naturally underneath.*
