Dr Jonathan Maxwell runs a clinic at our Monksfield Surgery approximately every month where surgery is performed on ingrowing toenails. These are removed or partially removed. He also removes toenails which are heavily infiltrated with fungal infection.
Patients with toenail problems can book in to see Dr Maxwell in normal surgery time to decide whether surgery would be appropriate or not.
All procedures are undertaken with the aid of local anaesthetic. After a toenail has been removed the toe will be dressed and the dressing will need to be changed by one of our Treatment Room Nurses the next day. Subsequent dressing changes may be required. Time off work may be required following a procedure depending on your job and other factors.
Dr Maxwell's secretary, Vicki Ford, organises the toenail clinics and maintains a waiting list for the procedures at times of high demand.
