Nail Surgery

A partial nail avulsion is a common surgical procedure performed by our skilled podiatrists to address specific nail problems, such as ingrown toenails or nail deformities. This procedure involves the removal of a portion of the nail, typically the edge or corner, to alleviate pain, prevent infection, and promote healthy nail growth.

Ingrown toenails, one of the primary reasons for partial nail avulsions, occur when the edge of the nail curves and grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection. Our podiatrists use partial nail avulsions to carefully remove the problematic section of the nail, ensuring that it no longer irritates the skin or causes discomfort.

Partial nail avulsions are performed in our office under local anaesthesia, making the procedure minimally painful. Following the avulsion, patients can expect a relatively quick recovery, often with minimal downtime. Our goal is to help you regain comfort in your feet and prevent recurring nail problems, ultimately improving your overall foot health.

If you're experiencing the discomfort and frustration of ingrown toenails or nail deformities, or if you have any concerns about your nail health, don't hesitate to contact our podiatry team for a consultation. We are dedicated to providing you with personalised care and effective solutions, such as partial nail avulsions, to ensure your feet are healthy, pain-free, and free from nail-related issues. Your foot health is our priority, and we are here to guide you toward a more comfortable and active future.
