Most common problems with neuroma surgery is failure and the chance of a stump neuroma.
Great care should be taken to suture the nerve in nearby muscles and decrease chance of stump neuroma formation.
I also perform a Radiofrequency Ablation treatment of the neuroma. This is a no incision type of surgical procedure.
Conservative treatment ranges from wider shoes, orthotics, cortisone injections and even alcohol sclerosing injections.
It typically takes 8 sessions of alcohol sclerosing injections to treat a painful neuroma. Injections are done every two weeks. Once the pain is gone, the injections are stopped.
Causes of a Neuroma Pain
Initial inflammatory reaction resulting in scarring or fibrosis around the nerve.
Compression of the nerve segment occurs.
Flat-feet, high arched feet, high heel shoes, narrow shoes, pointed shoes, and certain repetitive physical activities can result in the formation of a neuroma.
Surgery to Remove the Neuroma in the Foot
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a great minimally invasive treatment.
Surgical treatment of neuroma may be needed to take out the neuroma for a cure.
