Local anaesthetic and nail surgery
If you have had ongoing or recurrent pain from ingrowing nails, or if you feel that a nail is badly damaged or deformed you might consider Nail Surgery to remove the problematic nail.  It is a simple procedure under a local anaesthetic where your Podiatrists will remove all or part of the nail and then apply a chemical to prevent regrowth of the nail.

Testing for fungal nails

When a nail becomes infected by a fungus, certain characteristics can develop, such as discolouration, thickening or brittleness. A test will confirm whether a fungus is present and what the organism is, which is important to get the right kind of treatment.

Nail fenestration (the Lacuna Method)

Following a positive test for a fungal infection and discussion with your Podiatrist, you may choose this treatment plan.

A number of tiny holes are drilled painlessly into the nail allowing topically applied Lamisil antifungal treatments to reach the nail bed and treat the infection.

Verruca needling

Verrucae are a frustrating but usually benign lesion.  They are caused by a virus and as a result quite unpredictable in the way they respond to treatments. Needling is a simple procedure designed to disrupt the virus, create a strong inflammatory response and enhance your body’s ability to target the lesion.
