An ingrown toenail happens when a spike or rough edge of nail pushes into the soft skin at the side of the toe as the nail grows forward. This most often occurs on the big toes. The toe can be extremely painful, inflamed and infected.
Toenails that are thick or curved can also cause the toe sides to be painful even though they are not actually ingrowing.
We can often clear the offending piece of nail sometimes using local anaesthetic, this along with footwear and nail cutting advice may be all that is needed but sometimes a further procedure is required.
Partial Nail removal – Removal of the side of the ingrown nail
Total Nail removal – Removal of the whole ingrown nail
Both procedures include the surgery appointment & follow-up dressing appointments
We guarantee this procedure so that if there are any future problems we will treat until comfortable
The surgery is painless due to the administration of a local anesthetic
Once the offending piece of nail is removed a chemical is applied to the exposed cells to ensure regrowth of the nail does not occur
Dressing and bandages are then applied
The podiatrist will follow up with you in 2-3 days and then 2 weekly until everything is healed
Excellent on Google Reviews
Very happy with my appointment. Informative, gentle & immediately eased the discomfort with the ingrowing nail. Thank you & your lovely receptionist !!
Things were clearly explained to me regarding my left big toe in a concise and clear fashion.
I was very impressed with the advice given and how the situation may pan out with my procedure and everything was made clear on the condition of my toe nail
-Damini was excellent with putting me at ease and being so calm and understanding when I was very scared of the procedure (I’m not good with injections) she explained everything clearly and answered any questions I had and made sure I was okay throughout. She did the procedure with excellent care and helped to distract me when I needed something to take my mind off it. It couldn’t have gone any better and I really appreciate the level of care, it’s exceptional! Thank you so much.
Excellent experience today. Was extremely nervous about the surgery but the staff (especially the director of the company) made me feel so safe and cared for, their gentle care ensured I was well both physically and mentally well throughout.
I visited the Randells Norwich branch, Jubilee was very friendly, thorough and informative. I had an ingrown toenail.
My toes felt so much better almost immediately to walk on, still a little bit of healing but so much more comfortable Thank you Randell’s Footcare
