Neuroma and Nerve Pain

Updated 8/21/2018

In this video, Bill discusses his Mortons neuroma surgery and overall experience at UFAI.

 

The doctors at University Foot and Ankle Institute are leaders in the treatment of foot and nerve conditions, including Mortons neuroma, tarsal tunnel syndrome, nerve entrapment and neuropathy.

 

Accurate diagnosis nerve conditions is critical.  Our physicians are among the very few with extensive experience in neurosensory testing and ultrasound, tools needed to ensure a proper diagnosis.

 

Using the latest technologies available, our foot and ankle specialists pride themselves in offering the best care with the highest success rates in the country.

  • Neuroma's are benign but painful growths or inflammation of nerve tissue. When it's in the ball of the foot, it's called Morton’s Neuroma.

  • The tarsal tunnel is the located inside the ankle next to the ankle bones. When this nerve is squeezed, or compressed, it results in tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS).

  • Plantar fasciitis pain can sometimes be a pinched nerve that runs along the ankle and into the bottom of the heel that is also known as Baxter's neuritis.

  • Diabetic neuropathy begins with a change in sensation in the hands and feet, a numbness and tingling feeling that usually begins in the feet.

  • Dysport paralyzes damaged nerves so they can no longer transmit pain signals to the brain.

  • Cryotherapy is a state-of-the-art treatment for neuromas that freezes the nerve, stifling the its transmission signals, thus reducing pain.

  • The special padding custom molded orthotics provide is an important part of treatment and also lessens the chance for the neuroma to return.

    The therapists are very knowledgeable. It was nice to see how they all helped out where needed. If someone started something, but was busy when a treatment ended, then someone else would finish up. A nice team effort.
