A recent study in the Journal of Orthopedics(1) suggested that radiofrequency thermos-ablation is a practical and effective solution in patients with treatment resistant Morton neuromas. More than 88% patients reported complete resolution of symptoms without needing surgical intervention or other procedures.

Radiofrequency Ablation procedure involves the use of electric current in controlled doses to heat soft tissues surrounding the Morton’s neuroma. The intense heat generated as a result of radiofrequency probing allows selective destruction of pain transmitting nerve fibers to induce cell death, killing the nerve transmitting cells with only a minor effect on sensations.
