Why choose us?

...because you deserve a permanent solution to your ingrown toenails


During our 20 years in podiatry we have had patient after patient coming to us suffering from untreated or poorly treated ingrown toenails.

It is our belief that no one should have to live with sore toes as a result of toenail problems and that is why we founded Ingrown Toenail Care.

Our focus is on high quality care and effective ingrown toe nail solutions. We invest in ongoing training and professional development to ensure we stay current with the best ways to treat ingrown toenails.

Unfortunately patients are often traumatised by previous experiences – either with local anaesthetic injections or unsatisfactory treatment outcomes. That’s why we do everything we can to create a friendly and caring environment and earn our patients’ trust.

We invite you to visit us at our Darlinghurst clinic just 3kms from the centre of Sydney and take the first step towards overcoming toenail pain.
