Neuromas

Neuromas are benign (non-cancerous) growths on nerves in the foot. They usually occur between the 2nd and 3rd and 3rd and 4th web of the foot. These neuromas can cause pain when walking as well as an associated numbness in the toes. Surgery is often indicated if non-operative measures such as changing footwear, the use of orthotics or well-placed injections fail to resolve the pain. The neuroma is usually removed through a small incision on the top of the foot.
