Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgery 24 years experience
Yes: A morton's neuroma will not really go away. But proper offloading of the metatarsal heads with a neuroma or metatarsal pad can significantly help symptoms. A cortisone injection can help too.
Dr. Randy Lisch
Podiatry 38 years experience
Yes: If you alter your shoe wear, so that they are not too tight or small and with good support that eliminate shock, this will help. Your podiatrist will also have solutions for this with stretching exercises, possible cortisone or alcohol injection, or orthotics to help with this condition on a conservative basis.
Dr. Jeffrey Kass

Sure: Injection therapy i find to be very helpful regardless of how long it has been there.
Dr. Thomas Inwood

Neuroma: As stated by dr kass - sure . The combination of injections therapy and orthotics give great results
Dr. David Hettinger
Podiatry 36 years experience
YES...: I have found that most patients respond to conservative therapy, like pads, orthotics, injections, etc. I rarely perform neuroma removal surgery.

What causes a hemmorage in the eye following a retnial detatchment surgery.?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 52 years experience
Vascular leaks: The retina is very thin, very fragile but richly endowed with blood vessels and it sits on another carpet of blood vessels. Re-attachment surgery has to restructure a detached retina in the presence of all of this vascular richness and fragility and sometimes smaller vessels can leak or even vessels at the site of entry into the eye. This will clear usually with time.
