Abstract

Morton's neuroma has been treated with resection of the enlarged interdigital nerve by most of surgeons, but the numbness after resection could bother the patients. We reported the experiences of the good results after treatment of Morton's neuroma with the decompression of the interdigital nerve. Three patients, 4 feet were diagnosed to Morton's neuroma and taken the surgery, decompression of the interdigital nerve after the conservative treatments. The decompression can be considered first as another choice of treatment for interdigital neuroma before resection of the nerve.
