EDIN Surgery For Morton’s Neuroma
There are some non-invasive procedures of curing Morton’s Neuroma like the orthotics and injections. But when all of these procedures fail, Surgery would be necessary.
EDIN or Endoscopic Decompression of intermetatarsal neuroma is a procedure that has been successfully used in the early 90’s for a number of years. The benefit of the Endoscopic Decompression procedure is that it’s a Band-Aid surgery. In less than a week, patients are back in loose fitting footwear after 2 days in bandages.
Releasing the intermetatarsal nerve is the EDIN procedure’s focus. The procedure involves releasing the transverse metatarsal ligament that is squeezing the inflamed nerve. This is unique because the nerve is not removed compared to traditional Morton’s neuroma surgery and preserves your foot’s sensation.
Hospital or surgical center is where the EDIN procedure is executed. The surgical procedure will last for approximately 20 minutes and the patients are given with local anesthesia and sedated.
