What does it involve?

After Nail Surgery
Toenail surgery is a form of elective surgery that can be undertaken by a suitable foot specialist/chiropodist

In a partial nail avulsion a piece of toenail is removed from the side that is problematic and commonly a chemical is applied to prevent that piece of nail growing back again.

Sometimes the degree of toenail problems means that a chiropodist/foot specialist will discuss removal of the whole nail.

Chiropodists can discuss the conservative and longer term elective solutions for toenails. For those suffering with a toenail problem, then a chiropodist/foot specialist can help develop a plan and give advice. Following assessment chiropodists can discuss if nail surgery is appropriate.
