Surgical Treatment options for Morton’s Neuroma
Feel like you tried everything to get rid of your foot pain due to a Morton's Neuroma? Surgery is a successful treatment option for long term pain relief.
Derrick Henry, sustained a season ending injury this past Sunday while playing the Indianapolis Colts. This is a huge loss for the Tennessee Titans as there star running back will be undergoing surgery this upcoming Tuesday for a jones fracture.
A jones fracture, is a break in the fifth metatarsal bone (the long bone just before the pinky toe). For many these fractures can be treated without surgery but for an elite athlete surgery is usually the best option.
A jones fracture surgery requires putting the fracture bones back into a better position and holding the bones there with some special type of hardware, usually a screw.
These fractures require a period of the person being completely off their foot while the bone is healing.
