A new practice that specializes in the treatment of Morton’s Neuroma

The Center for Morton’s Neuroma

 

There are many approaches to treating Morton’s neuroma, butuntil now it has been difficult to find all these treatments in onelocation.   The Center for Morton’s Neuroma, based inFramingham, Massachusetts, offers full treatment options for Morton's neuroma,from insoles and injections to ultrasound guided neuroablation procedures tosurgery.  If you or someone you careabout suffers from pain in your forefoot, especially with walking or wearingshoes, it may be Morton’s neuroma.  TheCenter for Morton’s Neuroma may help you.  See www.mortonsneuroma.com formore information.

 

 

My Story:

When I went on a ski trip with my family about eight years ago,I ended up in the ski shop because my foot hurt too much to ski.   I thought that my boot was too tight and thatwas causing the burning pain and tingling in my foot.   Luckily,my wife is a Pain Medicine physician and she diagnosed a Morton’s neuroma.   For every subsequent ski trip, she gave me asteroid injection into my Morton’s neuroma several days before the trip, whichhelped.

 

I wanted a more long lasting and permanent solution.  So, I tried more invasive treatments. Initially,I had the neuroma frozen (cryoablation therapy, which improved my painsubstantially.  Finally, I just wanted tobe rid of it, so I had a sclerosing agent injected into the neuroma underultrasound guidance. After a few weeks, this procedure was repeated and sincethat time I have had no further foot pain.  I now get to ski with my family without anypain.

 

During my struggle with Morton’s neuroma, I did a lot ofresearch into the condition. I could not identify a single place which offers awide range of specialized non-surgical treatments for Morton’s neuroma where apatient like me, suffering from Morton’s neuroma, could go to receive theoptimal treatment for them.

 

I insisted that my wife open the Center for Morton’s Neuroma sothat people who suffer from Morton’s neuroma will be able to have a wide rangeof non-surgical treatment options available in one facility, performed by aboard certified specialist and done under ultrasound guidance. (We  believe ultrasound guidance dramaticallyimproves the success rate of the procedures and decreases the likelihood ofcomplications.)
