Plantar Fasciitis Surgery
What is plantar fasciitis surgery?
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition on the bottom of the foot, generally near your heel and arch. When the pain becomes severe, if the condition begins to negatively impact your life or work, it can be treated with surgery that partially cuts the plantar fascia ligament to release tension and reduce swelling.
How is plantar fasciitis surgery performed?
A general anesthesia or a local anesthesia may be used for this surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision to release the plantar fascia. If there is a bone spur it can be removed at the same time.
