Bleeding and Oozing Pus

What Should I Expect AFter the Procedure?

While I love when people walk out the door saying, “Wow, that guy really knows his stuff!” – my work doesn’t end there. I’m committed to long-term solutions for your pain. My support extends beyond your appointment.

I know a lot of people get a little queasy when it comes to the idea of surgery. However, if you’re living with pain brought on by an ingrown toenail, hammertoes, bunions (and the list goes on), a surgical procedure will be far less invasive than the irritating pain itself – and the relief you’ll feel will be well worth your time. Almost all ingrown toenail surgery, in particular, is done quickly under local anesthetic. Ingrown toenails can be a pest - always coming back to annoy your toes – I aim to stop it at it’s source so you can leave my practice without having to worry about the pain coming back

If you’re suffering from foot pain and haven’t found a solution, why not drop in for a consultation? I will take the time to sit down with you and uncover the source of your pain. As a natural problem solver, I’ll talk to you about all of your symptoms and together we'll find you the best option for treatment

3. Follow Up Care

I offer a needle-free injection and a relaxed atmosphere, so don’t worry. No one likes the idea of undergoing a painful procedure, but luckily, ingrown toenails can usually be fixed with relatively no pain.

2. Time for the Procedure

Surgery isn’t always necessary - breathe a sigh of relief - with the proper assessment, I will take the time to educate you on how to best care for your feet at home. When surgery is the best option, you can rely on the most non-invasive procedures done right in the comfort of my Nanaimo clinic. In most cases, I use a needle-free injector so you won’t need to face the needle if that makes you uncomfortable. The procedure is practially painless and 90% of ingrown toenails never come back.

Tell me Honestly... Is this Going to Hurt?

90% of ingrown toenails never come back.

Risk of More Serious Infection

Like any minor surgery, you’ll be sure to notice it after your appointment. Generally, the most common sensations following ingrown toenail surgery is a little pain and discomfort for a day or two, but a Tylenol is usually enough to keep it from bothering you. You will be given a 24 hour direct phone line for any concerns.
