Koby Guard Treatment for Neuromas

This treatment is generally reserved for those patients who have not had successful outcomes with orthotic therapy and or injection therapy. The aim of this treatment is to reduce the trauma/or compression on the digital nerve. This procedure is not a neurectomy (excision of the nerve), and therefore will leave normal sensation intact. This procedure involves making a small incision between the third and fourth toes under local anesthesia. The transverse ligament (a tissue that is responsible for holding the metatarsal bones tightly together) is identified and cut. This will result in a decompression of the localized nerve. The patient is able to ambulate immediately, though there will be some localized bruising. Full healing should take 4 to 6 weeks.
