Ingrowing Toe Nails
The Podiatric support within the Foot and Ankle Clinic also covers treatment for ingrowing toe nails. This can be quite a painful condition to have and the approach for resolution is very effective. This often involves the use of a local anaesthetic digit (toe) block. This allows us to remove a section of the nail on the offending side or all the nail plate if indicated. The healing rate following the condition is relatively quick and people are back to both their work and sporting activities within a short space of time.
