What is nail surgery?

We offer a full range of procedures to resolve painful nail conditions. Depending on the nature of the condition, either a small part of a nail or a whole nail may be removed under local anaesthetic. Phenol is normally applied to prevent the offending nail from re-growing.

A full pre-operative assessment is required to ensure that patients are suitable for this procedure. A minimum of two follow up appointments is required to ensure that healing is taking place as expected (these are included in our surgical prices).

Nail treatments offered include

  • nail surgery assessment
  • nail surgery with or without phenolisation
  • clearance of offending nail under local anaesthetic
