Ingrown Toenails

Painful ingrown toenails are very common. Removal of an ingrown toenail can with be done in 2 ways. It can be cut out, but this is not necessarily permanent, or permanent removal of the ingrown toenail.
Permanent removal of an ingrown toenail is usually recommended, and is a very common and simple procedure. It takes around 20mins for 1 side of the toenail or total toenail removal, with an extra 10 mins being added for an additional side of the toenail. The procedure takes place in the clinic room, where you have the option of watching or lying back while the ingrown toenail is removed.
This minimally invasive procedure leaves you with little pain and discomfort after, and back doing normal activity within a few days. During the ingrown toenail removal procedure you may bring things such as books and tablets to keep you entertained while it takes place.
