We regularly perform minor surgical procedures to resolve ingrown toenails and stubborn plantar warts.
Surgery is typically recommended in cases where the problem is severe or when conservative treatment is deemed ineffective. Both procedures are performed under local anaesthesia so you will feel no pain. Post-operative pain is either absent or minor.
Nail surgery is a specialty procedure which may involve removing part or all of the toenail. This procedure is usually recommended in acutely severe or chronic cases where conservative treatment has been unsuccessful or is no longer feasible.
Plantar warts can occasionally be resistant to conservative management. Surgical excision may help in these situations. Before surgery is recommended, an assessment will be conducted first in order to determine suitability.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
