Morton’s Neuroma Medical Studies

Below are some of the Morton’s neuroma Medical Literature and the Morton’s neuroma Medical Studies that show the effectiveness of the medical procedures that we use to treat Morton’s neuroma.

Please bear in mind that many of the studies do not use ultrasound guidance which we use for all our procedures and so theoretically our procedures should be even more effective than the excellent study results below. For a general discussion on the use of Ultrasound Guided non-surgical procedures to treat Morton’s neuroma click here.
