Morton’s Neuroma

We use advanced diagnositc equipment that can treat a Neuroma in just 20 minutes! This is an in-office, minimally invasive procedure that requires no general aesthesia and allows you to walk immediately afterwards. Get back to wearing your normal shoes and resume your regular activity within a few days.


Description

Growth or thickening of nerve tissue

Symptoms

Pain, numbness, and/or feelings of eletricty or tingling along the area of the nerve services

Treatment Options

Injections, anti-inflammatories, surgery

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

Injections and anti-inflammatories are aimed at reducing the swelling of the nerve tissue and therefore reducing the pain or discomfort associated with the neuroma. If the pain does not subside, surgical excision of the diseased nerve can be performed.  More recently, there’s a minimally invasive office procedure that we perform using cryotherapy that causes the nerve to die. The neuroma is permanently destroyed with almost no recovery time 

Expected Outcome

Relief of nerve pain to the area

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: No, neuroma's are non-cancerous soft tissue masses that can cause pain but are not fatal.

Answer: If you have a neuroma you want to avoid tight, narrow, or pointed shoes that put stress of the forefoot as these type of shoes can squeeze the bones near the neuroma closer together and cause pain.

Answer: No, a neuroma is sometimes found on an MRI when you have a separate issue entirely. If it is not bothering you, treatment is not necessary. If it becomes painful at a later date you will know that you have it and can discuss the treatment plan with your doctor at that time.
