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.
The role of our dietitian is to collect organise and assess data relating to your health and nutritional status. You can use this service, with or without metabolic disorder.
The dietitian aims to provide you with an evidence-based education by communicating information, advice and professional opinion.
Going to see a dietitian is really all about getting assistance with the management of centred nutrition. They can assist you by planning appropriate food choices and menus, educating you on your individual nutritional needs and ways of accessing and preparing food. To start planning, implementing and evaluating nutrition programs, please speak with your doctor about booking an appointment with the dietitian.
