When a painful ingrown toenail becomes persistent and you suffer frequent attacks, you made need a permanent solution to this. At Gold Standard we offer ingrown toenail surgery (partial/total nail avulsion) at all of our clinic locations. This is a simple procedure which is performed following a detailed review of your medical background. A section of nail is removed under local anaesthetic and the nail bed from where the nail grows is destroyed using a powerful chemical called phenol. Full advice is given after surgery and you will be typically reviewed a week later to check that the nail surgery is healing well.
