Ingrown Toenails

we care


I have an ingrown toenail. I have an infected ingrown toenail.

What Can We Do?

Almost everyone will suffer from an ingrown toenail at some point in their life. If treated quickly and effectively, discomfort can be prevented.
In the event that they become swollen and infected, or are a re-occurring problem, Podiatry First Sports can perform a simple permanent procedure that removes the offending portion of nail and prevents it from growing back.

"The procedure is carried out in less than 30 minutes and is performed under a local anaesthetic."

It does not involve any cutting of skin or stitches, and recovery time is very short. In most cases normal activity can be resumed the next day.
