Stump neuroma

Our most recent audit in October 2018 shows that none of our patients have suffered a stump neuroma after ablative radiofrequency for Morton’s neuroma.

Other centres using the technique also report a very low incidence of stump neuroma.

Radiofrequency can be used to treat stump neuroma in patients who develop this complication from open surgery.

We tend to use cryosurgery before offering radiofrequency because it causes less tissue destruction and provides potential for the nerve to recover from the treatment.
