We see a great deal of plantar fasciitis in our practice. If you have failed normal conservative care measures, the doctor may determine that you are a candidate for plantar fasciotomy.
About The Procedure
We can do this endoscopically (meaning minimally invasively with a scope) or sometimes percutaneously. Percutaneously means here in the office under local anesthetic. We use a minimally invasive blade and we release the insertion or attachment of the plantar fascia to relieve pain through a 2mm incision. You can expect to be in a boot for about 4 weeks, and may walk in the boot for this time. This surgery has minimal down time and a high rate of success with alleviating pain.
