Morton’s Neuroma Nerve Radiofrequency Ablation
Morton’s Neuroma Radiofrequency Ablation is a common treatment option for foot pain caused by Morton’s Neuroma.
The goal of the procedure is pain relief to provide longer lasting benefit than just an injection. Morton’s Neuroma Ablation delivers medication and heat directly (or very near) the source of pain generation, over the neuroma that causes the foot to hurt. The x-ray (fluoroscope) guided procedure includes a local anesthetic and a special probe that delivers heat. The anesthetic interrupts the pain signal transmission, and the heat disrupts the pain transmitted by the neuroma on the nerve.
