Morton’s Neuroma Surgery

Morton’s Neuroma Treatment – Pain in the ball of the foot

Interdigital Neuroma Surgery

Excision of a neuroma is where part of the damaged nerve that is causing pain and irritation is removed. The procedure may be carried out under local anaesthesia, sedation or general anaesthesia as a day case; you will only need to be admitted into hospital for half a day. Your surgeon will make a small incision over the top of the foot above the neuroma. Nerves on either side of the neuroma are carefully cut and the neuroma is removed.

What are the alternatives to surgery?
