Ingrown Nail Surgery in Adelaide

Ingrown toenails are a very common problem. The majority of nail issues can be managed and cared for without surgery. But there are times when surgery is the best option. Some of the reasons we will recommend surgery include:

  • You’ve had an ingrown toenail for a long period and it won’t go away
  • The nail has become infected and won’t settle with basic care
  • The nail has become so painful that basic care cannot be provided

All of our Podiatrist’s are highly trained in basic foot surgery and are easily able to manage the surgical care of an ingrown toenail. There is often a lot of fear around having nail surgery but we make every effort to make the procedure as painless and as easy for you as possible. The beauty is, the procedure we perform is extremely effective at permanently “curing”ingrown toenails.

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
