Many individuals suffer from a painful foot condition known as Morton's Neuroma. Dr. Sean S. Ravaei is a highly experienced podiatrist that provides treatment for Morton's Neuroma in the Greater Los Angeles, CA, area including Beverly Hills, Huntington Beach, Inglewood and the Inland Empire.
A former Chief of Podiatric Surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Dr. Ravaei is Board Certified Foot & Ankle Specialist and renowned foot surgeon. He takes a more holistic approach in minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible to help patients relieve foot pain and heal faster. His state-of-the-art facilities also specialize in cosmetic foot surgery.
Morton's Neuroma occurs due to the thickening of tissues surrounding the nerves in the affected toes. It can cause a stinging or burning sensation in the ball of your foot. Wearing high heels or tight-fitting shoes can cause Morton's neuroma. In many cases, wearing more comfortable shoes can help relieve the condition. However, when changing to more comfortable shoes doesn't ease the pain in a few days, it's time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ravaei. Our office has state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment, including X-rays and ultrasound, to rule out other foot conditions. If you are diagnosed with Morton’s neuroma, there are several treatment options, including corticosteroid injections, decompression foot surgery, and nerve removal surgery to relieve the painful condition.
Dr. Sean Ravaei is highly experienced in cosmetic foot surgery and is certified by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and the American Podiatric Medical Association. He has performed more than 5,000 foot and ankle surgical procedures. So, when painful foot deformities, including bunions, corns, hammer toe, athlete's foot, and neuroma, are taking you away from the activities you enjoy, our cosmetic foot surgery can provide relief.
When you have foot or ankle pain that lasts for more than a few days, especially in the ball of your foot, contact us at 866-866-FEET. We will schedule an appointment for you with our board-certified podiatrist and foot surgeon to determine if it is due to Morton's neuroma.
