Re: Morton's Neuroma

Neurologists are diagnosticians. They do not do surgery. Podiatrists do the most and orthopedists do some foot surgery.

Your symptoms are certainly consistent with the diagnosis of a neuroma. However, a sursitis under the metatarsal may mimic this.

As far as MRI and Ultrasound being definitive. It depends on who is reading it. I generally diagnose a neuroma based on clinical findings alone. I also have a diagnostic ultrasound and can use it to confirm the diagnosis if necessary.

Before you have any treatment, you need to have your questions answered to your satisfaction.

Full-length viscoelastic insoles incorporating areas of softer density in the heel and metatarsal region. Raised metatarsal pad aids in desired realignment of metatarsal heads.
