Neuroma Surgery (Trapped Nerves)

Often called Morton’s or inter-metatarsal neuroma, with pain ranging from a mild throbbing ache, to an intense constant burning with radiating numbness to the associated digits, often aggravated by tight footwear.

Pain is due to a thickening of the nerve sheath between the affected toes, commonly between the 2nd/3rd or 3rd/4th toes, treatment with a course of cortisone injections may help around 40% of patients,otherwise excision of the neuroma maybe indicated.

  • Surgery is nearly always carried out under local anaesthetic.
  • Surgery removes nerve through an incision on top of the foot.
  • Recovery is generally around 2 weeks, after which patients can begin to return to normal activities and footwear and return to work after a further 2-3 weeks.
