Re: Morton Neuroma

The injections are certainly one option in the treatment of a neuroma. The literature states there is a high rate of success with this treatment. It also states that if there is no favorable response by the 3rd injection, it is not likely to work. I recently saw a patient who I had done this one over 1 year ago and was satisfied that it had helped. The patient returned with the same symptoms again.
Other treatment can include injections of cortisone-like steroids, padding, wider shoes and surgery.

As far as an "expert" in the Boston area, I must say that neuromas are a very common thing for all podiatrists to see. If you are looking for a surgical expert here are some links:

Hope this helps

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
