What are they?

A part of the nail or the whole nail can easily be removed to resolve these problems.

Surgical appointment

  • We’ll perform the surgery under local anaesthetic and with clinical support
  • After surgery, we’ll dress the wound
  • Remember – bring a friend or family member as you will not be able to drive or walk home!


  • We’ll arrange another appointment for two days after your surgery to review and re-dress the wound
  • It may be necessary to book further weekly reviews to ensure the wound is healing properly.
