Tarsal Tunnel Release

There are cases when patients who are suffering from tarsal tunnel are in need of surgical intervention.

About the Procedure

Surgery for tarsal tunnel involves releasing the ligament which is adding pressure to the posterior tibal nerve.  The surgeon will carefully make an incision about 6-7 cm long, and release this ligament in order to decompress the area.

 

The patient will be in a boot for about 3-4 weeks, but may walk on the boot during this time.  We also add in early range of motion exercises.   This procedure has very little down time and does not require use of crutches following the surgery

 

If you have been battling with tarsal tunnel syndrome, be sure to see Dr. Barko or Dr. Hurless.
