Morton’s Neuroma is a benign growth of nerve tissue in the foot which is often caused when the nerves are compressed, and which can result in inflammation. Morton’s neuroma is generally treated with shoe modifications, orthotics and medication. If there is no positive response to these treatments and the condition is acute, surgery by a podiatrist might have to be considered.Foot and Ankle Associates is a Los Gatos podiatric clinic which treats all types of foot conditions including Morton’s neuroma.
