Ingrown Toenail Removal

Treatment of a mildly ingrown toenail may require just conservative self care measures. However in severe cases removal of the ingrown nail may be required. At Ennis Road Medical Centre our Doctors are experienced in ingrown toenail removal, having cumulatively treated hundreds of cases. If you are suffering from an ingrown toenail we encourage you to firstly make an appointment with one of our Doctors who will assess whether your nail can be treated with conservative measures including antibiotics or if an excision of the ingrown nail is required which we will proceed to do under a local anaesthetic.
