Crispin Body & Sole have the expertise to treat a ingrowing toe nail under local anesthetic, ensuring your comfort and wellbeing is the top priority.

What is Nail Surgery?

Ingrown toenail surgery involves the removal of the painful/diseased part of the nail, together with the corresponding portion of nail matrix, and chemical application to permanently prevent that portion of the nail from regrowing. It takes approximately one hour and is performed under a local anaesthetic. After the procedure, you’ll be able to walk out of the clinic.

Is it Painful?

Prior to surgery, we administer a local anaesthetic that numbs the entire toe for one-two hours, so there is no pain during or immediately after the procedure. If there is any discomfort once the anaesthetic wears off, it is usually well managed with paracetamol, rest and elevation of the foot. Our surgical technique for ingrown toenails is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no cutting of the skin and no stitches. This reduces the time it takes the toe to heal and minimises any postoperative pain.
