The Morton's neuroma was localized by careful palpation and was found to be between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal space. The area was cleaned and subsequently a 25 gauge needle was inserted half way between the MTP heads and advanced in a vertical position down through the transverse metatarsal ligament. 0.5 mL of Depo-Medrol and 0.5 mL of 0.25% Marcaine were injected at this site after aspiration. Postprocedure no complications were noted. Pressure was applied for a period of two minutes and a small dressing applied.POST PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS:
