Morton's Neuroma Surgery

A Morton’s neuroma is swelling and inflammation of a nerve that lies between two metatarsal bones of your foot. The trapped nerve can be surgically removed during a Morton’s neuroma surgery

Why Would It Be Performed?

Morton’s neuroma that does not respond to non-surgical treatment and is limiting your daily function can be surgically removed.

If you have Morton’s neuroma, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Tingling, burning or numbness in your toes
  • Stabbing pain
  • A feeling that you are walking on a pebble under the ball of the foot

What Does It Involve?

An incision is made on top of the foot between the metatarsal bones. The nerve is identified, and a short section of the swollen nerve is removed. The skin is stitched up and the foot dressed with a firm bandage.
