Research recommendations coming out of this guidance
NICE encourages further research into radiofrequency ablation for symptomatic Morton's neuroma. Further research should include details of patient selection and previous treatments. Studies should compare the procedure against other non-surgical treatments, such as steroid injections.
Outcome measures should include pain relief, the duration of treatment effect, and the need for subsequent treatments.
