Here at St Andrews Podiatry, in addition to standard podiatry services we provide some specialist services. Follow the links below for more details on what we offer.
In some cases of ingrown toenails, it can be advised by the podiatrist for the patient to undergo a minor procedure involving local anaesthetic to remove either part of the offending nail or the entire nail. This alleviates pain caused by the ingrown toenail and no further treatment is required other than dressing changes post-surgery. This is a minor surgical procedure that lasts around 45 minutes after the toe is completely numbed with anaesthetic. The recovery time varies depending on the patient and treatment option. We may need to liaise with your GP to determine suitability for surgery. Please ask for details.
