Neuromas are growths or tumors of nerve tissue, which oftentimes are benign and can be painful.

At Cherrywood Foot Care, we specialize in a therapeutic procedure to treat these growths, called neurolysis.

This treatment does not require surgery. Rather, the problematic nerve is dissolved chemically via seven weekly injections of ethanol mixed with a local anesthetic. Because nerve tissue has an affinity for ethanol, it absorbs the substance, which, after repeated exposure, becomes toxic enough to disintegrate the pain-causing nerve. Neurolysis has a success rate of more than 60 percent.
