Nail Surgery for Ingrowing Toenails

One toe both sides £200
Two toes both sides £300

Nail surgery is fast, effective, permanent relief from ingrowing toenails. The procedure begins with a medical history check to ensure suitability for the surgery along with an assessment of the nails that are ingrowing.

The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic. Once the toe is numb, a tourniquet is applied to the toe to ensure restricted blood flow to the area just for the duration of the surgery. This means it is a very clean procedure with very little blood. The nail is then loosened at the appropriate sides and then cut down the length of the nail. The sides of the ingrowing toenails are then removed. Effort is made to retain as much of the nail as possible to achieve a good cosmetic result on healing. A chemical called phenol is then applied to the sides of the nail that have been removed. It is this chemical that kills the nail bed and stops the same bit of nail re-growing. Once the chemical has been applied for the appropriate length of time, the tourniquet is removed and normal blood flow is restored to the area, which is then dressed. You will be given lots of advice pre–surgically to enable optimum healing post-surgery.

The procedure does not last long and patients are advised to bring a book or MP3 player to distract them throughout if necessary. The patient always lies flat during surgery so will not see the surgery being carried out.

Patients are not discharged until the site has completely healed. All post surgical dressing appointments are included in the cost and the clinic will supply all dressings to the patient throughout.

Biomechanical Assessments

£80 (hour appointment)

An in-depth assessment of lower limb biomechanics. If you are suffering from knee pain, hip pain, foot pain or have been diagnosed with a specific injury then this assessment may help. The Podiatrist will assess your lower limb and gait in relation to your complaint as many lower limb problems are caused due to the way that we walk.

The assessment takes about an hour and it is advisable to bring a pair of shorts to the assessment to enable a clear view of your gait. We also have a treadmill in the clinic, enabling us to view your running style should you be a keen athlete.

At the end of the assessment the Podiatrist will discuss the findings of the assessment related to your injury. A treatment plan will be formed in conjunction with the patient and advice given regarding treatment and prevention.

Treatment often comprises the use of orthotic insoles and will be prescribed based upon the individual needs of the patient and their presenting complaint.

To discuss these options further, it may be advisable to book in for a foot health check first and then should you take up the assessment, the charge of the foot health check will be waived.
