Morton's neuroma is a common form of foot pain that is frequently seen in podiatric and orthopaedic clinics. However, there have been no formal studies to establish exactly how common it is within the general population. According to a Cochrane report (Thompson et al. 2011), "a significant proportion of patients" who attend clinics for the management of foot-related conditions suffer from Morton’s neuroma. Morton's neuroma is estimated to be responsible for 7.8 per cent of all the podiatric surgeries performed in clinical practice each year (Bennett et al 2007). Certainly, even before we offered cryosurgery at the Morton’s Neuroma Centre, we encountered the condition frequently.
