In brief: No Not risky surgery

As non operative treatment failed , your doctor advised you to under go surgery , is simple removal of that thickened ( neuroma ) nerve , a low risk out patient procedure.
If you want you can even take a second opinion , your doctor will not object may even help you to get one.
