Nail Surgery at Teddington Osteopaths
Did you know that our podiatry department is equipped for nail surgery under local anaesthetic? If you are suffering from any of the following nail conditions:
- ingrowing toe nail
- thick nail
- deformed nail
- fungal nail (with or without thickness)
and you are in pain, you may need the nail to be partially or totally removed. It may be permanently removed or removed so that it will slowly regrow, for example, to allow for better efficacy of anti-fungal paint.
If the above applies to you, then nail surgery could be the answer. During your assessment our podiatrist, Baljit Brar, will discuss treatment options, the procedure, after care and the healing process.
Treatment includes the procedure, all dressings and four post-op redressing appointments. Your GP will be informed by letter of the procedure for their records.
Please contact our reception team on Tel: 020 8977 3295 to make an appointment with our podiatrist, Baljit Brar MSCh.

Are you Training for the London Marathon? A few tips from Stuart Walker
- Training for any marathon is a long process and can be rather boring. An MP3 player helps to alleviate the boredom. Try down-loading an audio-book for additional distraction.
- Be prepared to set aside 8-10 hours per week minimum and the commitment goes up as the date nears.
- It is vital to stretch. After every run stretch for about 20 minutes.
- Get treatment for niggles and strains early. Training on an injury won’t get it better!
- Consider preventative care. Try weekly osteopathy or sports massage treatments to prevent the build-up of muscle tension and joint dysfunctions.
There is a great deal of good information and advice out there, sometimes the amount can be a little off-putting, but make time to trawl through and find the bits that seem relevant to you.
And, remember, if in doubt ask a professional. The team at Teddington Osteopaths are skilled in treating and managing sports injuries as well as helping with advice on event planning and preparation. Call us on Tel: 020 8977 3295. Good luck!
