Success rate of surgery to remove nerve due to neuroma?

I was wondering what the success rate is for surgery when you have a Morton's neuroma (mine is between toe #2 and #3). I was told they remove a portion of the nerve, and that also they at times do a "splicing" of a ligament to enlarge the space. Do most or all surgeries for Morton's neuroma become successful? And if they splice a ligament, doesn't that weaken your foot structure some? I am trying to decide whether or not to have the surgery, and I'd like to know average success rates. I want to ask this from more than just my doc - who knows if he would be 100% accurate with an answer to me. Thanks for your input.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
