Morton’s Neuroma Surgery

Neuroma surgery is designed to remove the hardened neuroma tissue in the foot.  It is always best to explore non-invasive treatment options before considering surgery.  Once all other therapies have proven ineffective your doctor will explain your surgical options.

The neuroma and the nerve are both removed to eliminate pain. This procedure generally results in loss of feeling in the affected portion of the foot.
