Ingrown toenail surgery
Ingrown toenails are painful, frustrating and can cause a world of discomfort when it comes to living your life and carrying out your daily activities. When you develop an ingrown toenail, you’re much more likely to develop another and have the ingrown nail come back in the future. This is why we offer permanent solutions for ingrown, involuted and painful toenails through a minor surgery performed in our clinic in less than an hour. The surgical options for ingrown toenails include:
- Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA)
- Total Nail Avulsion (TNA)
Both are performed by our expertly trained Podiatrists until strict surgical protocols and the complete recovery time ranges from 2-8 weeks, though you are welcome to return to work or school within 1-3 days.
Verrucae, otherwise known as plantar warts, can be very painful, difficult to treat, and generally unpleasant to have on the feet. They are caused by a virus called the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). They are often contracted and present in childhood years, particularly from schools and shared facilities, though once contracted, can present at any time in adulthood.
When warts present on weight-bearing areas on the bottom of the feet (the areas that take a lot of pressure when we take a step), they can become very uncomfortable and painful when going about our daily lives. Warts can be as small as seeds, or as large as fifty cent coins - sometimes even larger. If warts are already present on the foot, there’s a higher chance that new warts can pop up literally overnight.
While we have many conservative treatments available for warts for all ages, at times, surgery may be the best option to get you back on your feet and walking normally and painlessly. Typically, this is when other treatment options have failed. Verruca surgeries are performed safely in our sterile treatment room by our expertly trained Podiatrists.
Surgical Removal of Foreign Bodies
A 'foreign body' describes anything that has been lodged in the foot that shouldn't be there or are causing pain. This includes shards of glass, pieces of metal, staples, splinters and painful hairs.
Here at Dynamic Podiatry, we’re proud to have a pristine surgical record, and in the event that you require further care for the diagnosed recurrence of the same condition, we will perform your surgical treatment again free of charge. We hold this guarantee even though many surgical outcomes are largely dependant on the patient’s repair and immune response, as opposed to surgical factors. It’s all part of our commitment to you to provide the best in Podiatric care.
