      Minimally Invasive Morton's Neuroma Surgery: What is it?

      In between the metatarsal bones and the toes on the bottom of the foot, a nerve is pinched. As the nerve gets pinched, the nerve gets swollen, and we call this a neuroma.

      A minimally invasive procedure (a single 2 mm incision) can be performed by opening up the space where the neuroma is pinched. This allows us to preserve the nerve, thus preventing the permanent numbness between the toes that is inevitable when the neuroma is cut.
