Nail Surgery


Nail surgery procedures must be undertaken by Health Care Professions Council registered
podiatrists who possess current certification in local analgesia and have been trained in the
appropriate techniques.

Nail surgery, either a total or partial nail avulsion with or without nail matrix destruction (ablation) is the principal surgical procedure that is available at the practice.

It is commonly used to resolve ingrowing, severely curved (involuted), thickened nails or in some circumstances loose but partially attached nails caused by sudden severe blunt trauma.

A simple, quick and effective treatment that is performed under local anaesthetic. Reviewing and redressing over 6 weeks approximately for complete resolution.
