Are you feeling exhausted and/or disappointed because your ingrown toenails keep coming back and cause you pain, even though you have tried numerous treatments? As you may know, if you had ingrown toenails before, you are more prone to have them back at a later stage, because of the presence of nail roots.
We saw and treated many patients with ingrown toenails in our clinic. They also have tried a lot of home remedies and available treatment options, however, they have not seen any significant improvement or even getting worse than before.
In our clinic, as a podiatrist, we are able to perform partial/total nail avulsions, which could be a very effective treatment option that you should consider.
Firstly, we will inject local anesthetics into your toes and wait until the toe is totally numbed. After your toes are numb, we will process the surgery by cutting your nail straight down and taking out part of ingrown toenail and also nail root. Finally, we will apply a medical chemical, called phenol, to prevent the nail from coming back. The good thing about this procedure is that you can go straight home after the surgery.
If you have tried everything and did not get any better results, you can always book an appointment in our clinic to be consulted. We will always try our best to give you the best advice and treatment options. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our clinic at (03) 9711 7652 or book appointment online here Book Online | The Footcare Clinic.
