"Amazing - Kevin is wonderful. His personality and kindness makes even the most unpleasant treatment (toenails removed) a giggle. He explained the process as he did it, totally relaxing me."

OUR SERVICES EXPLAINED
We offer a minor surgical procedure in-clinic to remove ingrown or damaged toe-nails.
The safe and effective procedure is carried out using local anaesthetic and can be used to remove or resect all of the nail (total nail avulsion) or part of the nail (partial nail avulsion).
The nail can be removed permanently or allowed to regrow if desired.
We use a minor procedure known as ‘needling’ to remove viral warts (verrucae) from any part of the foot. This procedure is carried out safely and painlessly - with no scarring - using local anaesthetic to numb the lesion or the foot.
Included in the cost of either nail surgery or verruca removal:
First follow-up appointment 48hrs post surgery
Redressing appointments as required
