Frequently asked questions

What is involved with nail surgery?

The toe is anesthetised and the offending portion of nail removed. This is surprisingly easy. With no cutting of the skin, sutures are not required resulting in substantially reduced recovery time.

Do I need to take antibiotics before the surgery?

Surgery cannot be undertaken with an active infection of the nail and you will be required to commence antibiotics prior to the procedure. Your podiatrist will advise you accordingly after your assessment.

What happens after the surgery is completed?

The podiatrist will apply the dressings and provide post-operative care instructions. The initial dressing will need to be kept dry for approximately 3 days. The podiatrist will arrange a time to remove the dressing and review the surgical site.
