Do I really need to have surgery for Morton’s neuroma?
Tried corticosteroid injections? Physical therapy? Massaging? Medications? Now what? Surgery for Morton’s neuroma?
You can avoid surgery. Chronic cases of Morton’s neuroma are ideal candidates for interventional and minimally invasive procedures like Ultrasound guided radiofrequency ablation that involves utilization of powerful radiations for the destruction of neuroma or Cryosurgery which freezes the neuroma leading to it’s destruction. The success rate of these procedure are around 85-90%, with fairly high patient satisfaction scores and early return to the normal routine as compared to traditional surgical procedures.
