After a Morton’s neuroma procedure, Selene can now wear any shoe she wants and be on her feet all day and is still pain free at the end of the day.
Selene has had severe left foot pain for about 5 years due to Morton’s neuroma. Her podiatrist who suggested a cortisone injection or surgery. Everything she read online lead to surgery with poor outcomes. Her pain was so severe that significantly limited her activities, and she felt that she missed out a lot. She found us online and then did a lot of research before deciding to come. She had a great experience at our center. Soon after her procedure her sharp pain dissipated and then over the next few weeks all her pain went away. Now she can wear any shoe she wants, she’s on her feet all day and has no pain at all, even at the end of the day.
Transcript of short testimonial:
I was a sales manager for years and on my feet all the time. But about five years ago, I started to get pretty severe pain towards the end of the day in my left foot. It just was painful, pins and needles, just awful. It didn’t matter what kind of shoe I wore. It was more a matter of how long I was on my feet. And being in a sales position, I was on my feet all day. In my research, I started to look at alternatives to Morton’s neuroma treatment, and that’s what led me to The Center for Morton’s Neuroma.
The staff was so welcoming and so supportive from the moment I got there. From the moment I made my first email inquiry, the information I got back, I just felt like this was going to be a very good experience for me. Dr. Gosal, she was fabulous with me. She explained every step of the way, what she was going to do, how she was going to do it, that she had done it, and then onto the next piece of the procedure. Walking my dogs and being able to be at work and just walk through a full day and not have any pain. Over the period of weeks as it healed, even the discomfort from the procedure having been done dissipated and I have no pain at all. Running around. I’m playing with the grandkids. I’m walking the dogs. I’m hiking. I’m biking. And I have no pain in my foot at all. And so for that, I’m very, very grateful.
my name is Gail. I live down in Florida most of the winter and I noticed that as I was walking the beach, I’m a huge walker. And I was walking the beach and every day and after a while, my foot just started to hurt. I had no idea what it was and when I got back home and I had been suffering with this pain for I would say almost a year, not knowing what it was or what to do about it.
And when I came back from Florida, I happened to discover The Center for Morton’s Neuroma, not knowing what it is or what the procedure was or anything. So I went in for a consultation. I had the procedure. I was really kind of blown away with it. I was skeptical, I got to say. I was skeptical. “You’re going to do what? That’s going to help?” It took about four months for the pain to be relieved, but I have been absolutely pain-free and I’m back to my walking, and I’m back to my hiking.
And I just couldn’t walk. I was so discouraged because it was something that I really enjoyed doing and did a lot of. The team was awesome. So the first time I went in and then back for the actual procedure, I couldn’t have had a better experience. I would highly recommend it to anybody and I have if they’re suffering from this kind of pain.
Transcript of full long testimonial:
I was a sales manager for years and on my feet all the time. But about five years ago, I started to get pretty severe pain, kind of towards the end of the day in my left foot. It just was painful, pins and needles, just awful. It didn’t matter what kind of shoe I wore, it was more matter of how long I was on my feet. And being in a sales position, I was on my feet all day. I started doing some research. I went to see a podiatrist and was diagnosed with a Morton’s neuroma. And at that point he said, we could do a couple of things. We could try some cortisone injections. We could only have a few of those. Some people had success, some people didn’t, we would just have to see what it was or he could surgically remove the neuroma.
But then I ran the risk of other complications. So I took that information and I went to my computer and sat down and did as much research as I could find. Everything led to a surgery with very uncertain outcome. And for somebody who’s on her feet all day, I just couldn’t get my head around that. It was limiting my evening activities, riding my bike, walking my dogs, playing with my grandkids.I mean just whatever it would be, I can’t do it. I can’t stand on this foot. So I missed out on a lot that normally I just took for granted that I could do that. I’ve always been very physically active and suddenly I was just, for reasons I didn’t understand, unable to do the things that I was used to doing. In my research I started to look at alternatives to Morton’s neuroma treatment.
And that’s what led me to the center for Morton’s neuroma. You were the only site that came up under alternative treatments. Everything else was that invasive surgical route and I knew I wasn’t going to go there. Then I started looking at all the reviews that were on your website from people who had, had this procedure done and their experiences. Now, most people had a very positive outcome and those who didn’t attributed it to different things, but not the procedure itself, lifestyle choices or whatever. I talked it over with my husband and we decided I should go ahead and proceed with this. Now I live in Missouri and the center for Morton’s neuroma is in Boston. So it’s a bit of a trek to get there. And I knew that it might take more than one treatment. So I might have to make multiple trips in order to get a positive outcome.
I made my appointment and I went in January and over the course of the three days that the initial treatment or the mapping and then the actual treatment and then the follow up, I had a great experience. The staff was so welcoming and so supportive from the moment I got there from the moment I made my first email inquiry, the information I got back, I just felt like this was going to be a very good experience for me. So I went up in January, of course, Boston it’s cold and whatever, my best friend happens to live there, not far from your office. So I was able to stay with her and get some aftercare treatment with her, before I flew home. The procedure itself was noninvasive. Dr. Gosal, she was fabulous with me. She explained every step of the way, what she was going to do, how she was going to do it, that she had done it.
And then onto the next piece of the procedure. I walked out of there. I had a cane and a very comfortable shoe. You’re messing with your feet. You definitely want a comfortable shoe. I went back to my girlfriend’s house and the next day we went and did a little shopping, because I had to get out and walk anyway, they write they want you to up and walk around on it. But we walked for about an hour, went home, everything was fine. So I get back to Missouri and now begins the healing. And I just… No jumping, no cycling because of severe pressure, but walking my dogs and being able to be at work and just walk through a full day and not have any pain. I had some discomfort from the procedure, but that sharp burning pain in my foot was gone, completely gone.
And then over the period of weeks, as it healed, even the discomfort from the procedure having been done, dissipated and I had no pain at all. Now I wear sensible shoes. I will never go back to Italian pointed toe, high heeled shoes. We’re past that. But I do wear any kind of shoe that I want with a small heel to a flat shoe. And I have no pain in my foot at the end of the day. I’m on my feet all day. I’m running around, I’m playing with the grandkids, I’m walking the dogs, I’m hiking, I’m biking. And I have no pain in my foot at all. Now my feet might get tired, but I don’t have that pain in my foot. And so for that, I’m very, very grateful. Never had a cortisone shot, never had a surgery where they cut and removed anything.
And I just, for me, think that it was the absolute best option and would recommend it to anybody as at least something to explore might not be for you, but it certainly has been for me, 100% improvement. I couldn’t be happier. I think part of what made my procedure so successful is I never had a cortisone shot. I never had anything done to this tumor to get aggravated or amplify it, or just cause additional problems. It was just the tumor. So we weren’t working around anything else. And I think that really helped.
