A neuroma is a painful inflamation of a nerve in the foot. It is usually between the 3rd and 4th toes, but can be in the ankle, arch, heel, and other toes. This problem often worsens throughout the day, and often requires you to take your shoes off to get relief.

Neuromas are often treated conservatively with injections, orthotics, or change of shoes (no high heels). If the neuroma does not respond to this therapy, an MRI or Ultrasound is used to measure the size of the neuroma, and it is removed as an Outpatient procedure.

Surgery is an excellent treatment for neuroma if done properly. You can walk immediatly, the incision heals within 2 weeks, and you can return to a shoe within 3-4 weeks as soon as the swelling goes down.
