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 need to carry out minor surgery known as partial nail avulsion. We’ll use a 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 that moulds to your natural nail impression to reconstruct missing parts of your nail. This looks like a normal, healthy toenail while your existing nail grows naturally underneath.* Wilde-Pedique can be used to replace toenails that have been surgically removed due to infection or trauma or to fix nails that have split or cracked to prevent snagging.

  • No odour or discolouration – Once the nail restoration has been cured it will not change
  • No chemical activators – No primer or chemical activator is used that will damage the nail or surrounding skin
  • No damage to the nail – The treatment will not hinder the natural nail growth
  • Non-porous – Moisture and air cannot penetrate the gel nail, preventing the spreading or development of infection
