Ingrown and Cosmetic Toenail Surgery
Ingrown toenails are incredibly painful and will generally present with one or both sides of your nails being red and inflamed. This is something that will generally get worse with time and no treatment. At Melbourne Sports Podiatry we ensure that you are given a proper assessment and immediate treatment if required, to get you moving back on your feet again.
Cosmetic toenail surgery can be used for people who have a toenail or portion of toenail that they believe is not cosmetically appealing removed. This is a very low risk surgery that generally won’t keep you off your feet for any more than 24 hours.
