Toe Nail Surgery

The Surgery

You will feel no pain during the procedure as a local anaesthetic is used. After the removal of the nail, a chemical called phenol will be applied to the exposed nail bed. Phenol prevents regrowth by destroying the nail cells. However some nail growth occasionally occurs at a future date.  Healing can take between 4 to 8 weeks.  

After surgery, a sterile dressing will be applied to the toe. The first redressing will be undertaken within 7 days of the surgery. You will be monitored at the clinic until your toe has completely healed.
