Prosper offer corrective toenail surgery as part of their Podiatry services in their Geelong and Colac Podiatry clinics. This is a procedure the clinic is highly skilled at and typically gets great results.
For such a small area of our body an ingrowing toenail can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. The most commonly affected are the big toes but it can also occur on the smaller toes as well. The main reasons for developing an ingrown nail are incorrect trimming technique, trauma to the nail from footwear or excessive curvature of the nail.
Luckily, there is an extremely effective procedure that has fantastic long term results. In this procedure we gently remove the ingrowing edge of nail, use a chemical to stop regrowth and dress the toe with a sterile bandage. This is all completed in our rooms under a local anaesthetic by our highly skilled team and requires no stitches.
