For patients with re-occurring, excessively curled or particularly painful in-growing toe nails. This will involve a local anaesthetic at the base of the toe which may cause only minor pain similar to having a dental injection. The procedure itself is otherwise painless and involves having either one or two sides of the nail removed. It lasts around 12-15 mins but the overall appointment is approximately 45 min. This is simply to provide the patient with a relaxed environment whilst we take our time and ensure a thorough service is provided.
