Why wouldn’t you try an ablation treatment for your Morton’s before surgery?
Why are you so confused?
It seems so simple to us….
We believe that an ultrasound guided ablation procedure is far less invasive than any open procedure or surgery and results in at least as good (if not substantially better) sucess with far less complications and a much faster recovery time.
We can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t try an ultrasound guided ablation procedure before attempting anything more invasive…
