Ingrown Toenail Surgery

Experience minimal discomfort with expert Ingrown Toenail Surgery at Lidcombe Podiatry, aimed at providing long-term relief.

Ingrown Toenail Surgery addresses severe cases where toenails grow into the surrounding skin, causing pain, inflammation or infection. These problems often result from improper nail trimming, footwear that crowds the toes or accidental injury. Through surgical intervention, the offending portion of the nail is carefully removed, which provides relief and prevents further complications. At Lidcombe Podiatry, we are proud to offer top-tier ingrown toenail surgery, combining expert care with the latest techniques to ensure the best outcomes for our patients in the Cumberland area.

Ingrown Toenail Surgery Process

Ingrown toenail surgery is a precise procedure aimed at alleviating pain and preventing further complications caused by ingrown nails. At Lidcombe Podiatry, we ensure that every step of the process is conducted with utmost care and professionalism.


  1. Consultation and Examination: Initially, a podiatrist assesses the affected toenail to determine the severity of the ingrown nail and discuss the most suitable surgical options.
  2. Preparation: The toe is cleaned, and a local anaesthetic is applied to minimise discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Surgical Procedure: The podiatrist removes either a portion of the toenail or, in severe cases, the entire nail.
  4. Post-Surgical Care: Instructions are provided for at-home care to ensure proper healing, which might include dressing changes and prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection.
  5. Follow-up: Patients typically return for a follow-up visit to monitor the healing process and manage any complications.
