Our exclusive state-of-the-art Radiofrequency Ablation technology for the common problem of the foot, neuromas. This is a small probe that is inserted into the neuroma(s) and a 90 degrees Celsius heat is applied to the nerve causing damage to the nerve so that it will no longer conduct pain signals. Procedure itself is totally painless.
The patient is examined by one of our doctor specialists, then determine if you are a candidate. The procedure is done in our operating suite at 12250 Tamiami Trail East, suite 101 Naples, FL 34113. The foot is prepped then nerves around the ankle is numbed with local anesthetics.
2 -3 application of the RadioFrequency tip is done for the treatment. Oftentimes a second treatment is required at 1-2 months depending on patient recovery. Light band aid is applied and the patient walks out of the office.It is FDA approved as a medical / surgical device but insurance will not recognize such for payment for use in the foot.
Ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure for relief of Morton's neuroma pain. The nerve is temporarily destroyed and the pain from the area is not transmitted any further. The procedure has been used in medicine for many years.
The procedure is mostly painless procedure and you are likely to only feel
pain when the local anesthetic is injected into the foot. Normal activity can be resumed within 24 to 48 hours and pain is managed by NSAIDs.

Runner unable to go about her activities after neuroma surgery at another facility. Drove to our neuroma clinic desperately seeking a cure. Combination of two highly effective procedures used to help relieve the pain and return back to running.

Don't fall victim and have a lifetime of disability with failed neuroma surgeries or stump neuromas. You DO NOT want neuroma surgeries, it is highly unpredictable and horrendously painful results if you have not tried other treatments prior.
Stump neuroma cured!
Radiofrequency ablation is a great alternative to stubborn neuromas not responsive to injections, antiinflammatories, physical therapy and orthotics therapy. NO side effects noted from this procedure as the nerve is heated at 90C for 90 seconds x 2. Patients are treated once, then again one month after. Physical therapy after is mandatory as well as topical medication to help with the condition. Shockwave therapy can also add to benefit of non operative neuroma cures. We have a video of that also.
