Morton's Nuroma

Posted by Josie on 10/23/01 at 10:40 (063453)

I understand there is a new treatment to remove Morton's Nuromas other than surgery. Is this series of shots a good alternative? Tell me more. I have had one removed surgericly a few years back, now I have one on the other foot and this injection treatment has been offered. I have had the first injection and it was very painful. The Doctor says it will take 8 to 10 injections and they are very costly. Any information on this delema would be appreciated.

Hi,

This is where an injection of 4% alcohol is used,mixed with a local anesthetic to nerve the morton. It can be very effective with multiple treatments.
