A Morton’s neuroma is a swollen, inflamed nerve between the bones at the ball of the foot. Where conservative treatments such as orthotics, padding and injections prove ineffective, surgery may be advised.
Dr Buckley performs a technique for Morton’s neuroma that involves removing (excising) the damaged nerve (neuroma) through a small incision over the top of the foot. Morton’s Neuroma surgery is a definitive treatment and can be a good option when other treatments have been ineffective and exhausted. The procedure is performed within a hospital on a day surgery basis and takes around 20-30 minutes. After Morton’s neuroma surgery, patients are permitted to bear weight on their foot straight away and are required to wear a splinted sandal for 2-6 weeks depending on their recovery.
