Wedge Resection – Ingrown Toenail
Ingrown toenails are painful and uncomfortable. The nail grows into the skin, causing inflammation and or infection.
A wedge resection is a procedure where a section of ingrown nail is removed, altering the nail bed and preventing any nail regrowth in that section. Your nail will grow out narrower than it did before.
General Check Ups
Annual health check-ups are a great way to take stock of your health and identify factors which may be putting you at a higher risk. There is no standard health check-up for anyone as family history, pre-existing illness and medication that you are on can change the review intervals.
However, basics such as blood pressure, body mass index (BMI – height and weight) and waist size are important measurements that should be recorded for everyone on a regular basis.
