Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessments

Our nail care journey begins with a comprehensive diagnostic assessment conducted by our team of qualified podiatrists. We may employ a range of diagnostic tests, including nail clippings and scrapings. This enables us to identify the root cause of your nail disorder and craft a tailored treatment plan accordingly.

A Range of Treatment Options

Once a diagnosis is made, we offer a broad array of treatments to manage your symptoms and cure your condition when possible. This could include topical or refer you to your GP for assessment for oral antifungal medications for fungal infections, surgical options such as nail avulsions for extreme cases of ingrown toenails. Debridement, or the removal of damaged tissue, can also be performed to speed up the healing process and prevent further infection.

Ongoing Management and Prevention

Chronic nail issues may require ongoing treatment and management, which could involve regular appointments progress assessment, and further debridement. We provide an ongoing care plan designed to manage symptoms and prevent recurrences effectively.
