Morton’s neuroma gets its name from a general surgeon named Thomas George Morton, who treated soldiers in the American civil war.
Morton’s neuroma is characterised by an thickening of the nerve and compression of the nerve in the forefoot, typically between the third and forth toe. This compression can lead to pain, tingling, or numbness in the foot making walking difficult.
