How to avoid ingrown toenails 

Often ingrown toenails are caused by the way your foot functions and there may also be a family history of ingrown toenails, which can be dependent on the shape of your nail. Wearing well fitting shoes will help your nails  grow in a natural direction, also incorrect  nail cutting can make the problem worse. Avoiding repeated injury to toenails with certain sports can prevent the problem
If you play a lot of sports, then maintaining good hygiene can prevent further problems. Always cut your toenails straight across and never into the sides.

Once the surgery is complete, a chemical called phenol will be applied to the nail bed. This will prevent re-growth of the nail, or part of the nail that has been removed. Once completed, your toe will be dressed, and we will advise you of your post-operative care. You will return to Michelle Bird Podiatrist / Chiropodist clinic within 3-5 days of the surgery for check-ups.

"I had a partial nail avulsion carried out at this practice last week. I was apprehensive to say the least but I can honestly say that the whole procedure was quick, effective and more importantly, TOTALLY painless. Poppy was so calm and re-assuring - I can't thank her enough. 
I was hobbling around for months putting it off but so glad I went. No post-surgery discomfort either. I'm already back in 
my normal shoes, (even with the dressing on for a little while longer) and it's great not to have any pain as I walk. Thank you Poppy. 
I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and Poppy. A first class service!" "
