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.

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.
