Surgical success for Morton’s Neuroma
Surgical excision of Morton neuroma has a fairly low success rate that may range from 55% to about 85%, depending on factors like expertise of the surgeon and nature of procedure employed.
Surgical techniques that utilize a plantar approach are associated with slightly better long term clinical outcome when compared to dorsal approach in refractory Morton neuroma cases. However, there are no significant differences in terms of the amount of post-operative pain, the capacity to return to normal daily activities and scar tenderness.
