Searching for Morton's neuroma expert

Can any of the doctors refer me to a known expert in Morton's Neuroma. I am looking for a physician / practice that specializes in diagnosing, identifying and treating all modalities of this condition.
A physician who actually suffered from this condition and recovered from it might be preferred.
I have had (1) cortisone injection which made the problem worse, and then 2 months a cryosurgery which after 8 weeks my foot is again the same or worse. I cannot wear any closed shoes, and feel basically hopeless. The pain to walk is unrelenting and unbearable, it feels like I am walking on broken glass. I have spent thousands of dollars on shoes, traveled across the country to have cryosurgery and buy orthotics. To date I have no relief, my pain is as bad or worse than it was 6 months ago. My experiences to date have been so bad, my fear of open surgery or MIND surgery so great that I am searching for any answer other than those options.
I do not believe that I could cope with the pain of a failed open procedure if it is worse than this.
If anyone knows of a physician or practice that will not cause greater pain or may be able to help me please reply to this post.

Dr. John Gould, UAB Orthopedics, Birmingham, AL. He removed mine and I've had no problems since. That was in 2002.

And BTW, cortisone injections do not work for this. Alcohol injections are the correct ones but don't always work.
