Abstract

An approach to the treatment of dorsal foot pain of neuroma origin is described based upon principals demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of upper extremity dorsoradial neuromas: translocation of the appropriate nerves into a muscle environment away from the joint. In the lower extremity, this requires identification of the appropriate nerves by anesthetic block, reSection of the dorsal foot neuroma(s), and translocation of the nerves into the muscles of the anterolateral compartment. This approach yielded excellent results in 9 of the 11 patients with a mean follow-up of 29 months.
