Houston morton's neuroma surgeryNeuroma surgery is one of the more straightforward foot surgeries there is. The neuroma is an inflamed swelling of the nerve. The surgery to correct a Morton's neuroma involves identification and removal of the swollen piece of nerve.

 

Because the enlarged portion of the nerve is removed, the pain associated with the neuroma is eliminated. In many cases the patient realizes this improvement soon after the surgery. After surgery, the patient is able to bear weight on the foot immediately, in most cases.

 

Don't let surgery scare you away. Like most surgeries it is a last resort. Neuroma surgery, when indicated and performed, is one that is very successful. Contact your Houston podiatrist to schedule an appointment to evaluate the pain in the ball of your foot and recommend the best treatment for you.
