MORTON’S NEUROMA EXCISION
This operation is to remove an inflamed and/or swollen nerve in the ball of your foot trapped between 2 bones.
A Morton`s neuroma causes pain in the ball of your foot and possibly your toes. It can sometimes be treated with simple measures such as comfortable shoes, weight loss, insoles and simple pain tablets. If these measures do not work, an injection of local anaesthetic and corticosteroid will be tried and if this is not sufficient to control your symptoms, the trapped nerve can be surgically removed. Occasionally people have morton`s neuromas in both feet.
Discussion with Mr Kumar is important to answer any questions that you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us via our appointments page here to discuss your case.
