A neuroma is a benign growth or inflammation of nerve tissue. When the swollen or thickened nerve is in the ball of the foot it's called Morton’s Neuroma. The inflamed nerve can cause pain and feel like you're walking on a pebble on the ball of your foot.
Foot neuromas mostly occur in response to injury or over-use and usually appear between the third and fourth toes and normally affect only one foot.
UFAI is nationally recognized for the research and advances we have made for neuroma treatment. We always try to avoid nerve excision and begin with less invasive measures. Only if these do not work do we suggest surgery.
