Neuromas Can Form When Nerves Attempt to Heal

When a nerve is severed or injured, it attempts to regenerate. If the nerve does not have a clear target to regenerate towards, this process can result in a disorganized mass of nerve tissue called a neuroma.

Neuromas are common after amputation but can occur after any nerve injury. They can cause debilitating pain and can inhibit a patient from performing various activities.

Advanced surgical procedures are sometimes required to treat neuromas, including targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) and regenerative peripheral nerve interface (RPNI) surgery.
