Nail Surgery

Removal of nail is an office procedure that is done in many situations where the damaged nail affects the surrounding normal skin. Consent will be taken from you prior to the procedure.

It is a curative treatment modality in many conditions such as in-growing toe nail or fungal infection of the nail. It is also done for thick, painful and deformed toe nails.

In certain diseases a biopsy of the nail is required to make a correct diagnosis.

Certain growths inside, besides or around a nail may sometimes need to be treated with removal of whole/partial nail, alongwith removal of the growth.

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia. This is achieved by using an anaesthetic injection (given around the affected nail) similar to that used by dentists.

Partial nail removal involves removal of a piece of nail from the side that is problematic and a chemical is applied to prevent that piece of nail growing back again. Complete nail removal means that the whole nail is removed.

You can usually go back to work the day afterwards. You simply need to remember to keep your toe protected at all times.

The nail usually heals up over a period of 4 – 8 weeks if you follow all the advice given to you. Over this period we see you for re-dressings to ensure everything is healing well.

Advice before your appointment:

  • Remember to have something small to eat before your appointment.
  • The procedure will last approximately 1 hour.
  • Please bring some loose shoes or sandals with you for your own comfort.
  • Please arrange some form of transport home. You should not plan on driving yourself, taking public transport or walking.
  • Plan the day so you can go home and rest with your feet up (only for surgeries on toe nails).
  • You will have your first redressing appointment a few days after the surgery. It is essential that you attend all re-dressings.
