A surgical procedure to treat recurring troublesome or in-growing toe nails.
This is carried out under local anaesthesia (injections into the base of the toe).
The offending part of the nail is removed and a chemical (liquefied Phenol) is applied to prevent re-growth.
The toe is then dressed and follow-up appointments and dressings/ instructions are provided until the toe(s)
are completely healed, usually between 4-8 weeks after surgery.
