Ingrown Toenail
Removal Surgery

Ingrown nails can usually be treated during a general foot health appointment with us. However, if the nail breaks the skin, it could become infected. Infected toenails generally need surgery to partially or fully remove the nail – this helps relieve discomfort and provides a permanent solution.

*If you’re looking for alternative ways to treat ingrown toenails, we do provide other Podiatry methods. Give us a call on 01273 711399 or email for more information.

What Can I Expect At My Appointment?

When you book into our Brighton & Hove clinic you will receive:

  1. 45 minute initial consultation with our expert Podiatrist to qualify whether you are suitable for having local anaesthetic for Ingrown Toenail Surgery.
  2. If you qualify (which is common), we’ll book you in for your 60 minute procedure…
  3. …followed by a 30 minute redress 48 hours later.
  4. 1 week later you will have a 30 minute check-up and redress.
  5. Your final visit will be a 30 minute check-up 1 month later to ensure the procedure has been successful and that the toe has healed well.

Toenail Surgery FAQs

How Much Does It Cost?

£277 for one foot – this includes up to 4 total appointments: the 60 minute procedure, plus x3 follow up appointments.

It still seems quite pricey!

Prices are always higher when an anaesthetic is used (take Dentists for example). You’re also paying for a far greater chance of removing this unsightly and painful problem faster than most other methods. We ask you to compare our prices with other local Podiatrists as you’ll find ours to be very competitive. 

What if the initial consultation doesn't allow me to progress with Ingrown Toenail Removal?

If any issues are found during your 45 minute initial consultation that prevents you from having this procedure, our Podiatrist will offer you alternative Toenail Removal options and you will only be charged for the initial appointment.

Will I be able to drive after the treatment?

Ingrown Toenail Removal Surgery involves a local anaesthetic (in the foot only). We advise you to NOT drive any vehicle for 24 hours after the procedure (your motor insurance may be compromised as a result of having local anaesthetic).
