Minimally Invasive Plantar Fasciitis Surgery
We offer minimally invasive keyhole plantar fascia release surgery (instep fasciotomy) which releases a portion of the plantar fascia. Only requiring a small 1 – 2 cm incision you will be up and walking the same day* and this surgery has a 93.6% success rate (link reference)
The operation for plantar fasciitis is usually day-case procedure and can be done under local anesthesia, twilight sedation or general anesthesia. The operation usually takes around 20-30 minutes.
Large Heel Spur Surgery
Minimally invasive keyhole surgery is also used to remove larger heel spurs.
This unique procedure effectively treats the condition at its source reducing significant downtime, scarring, or compromise to the other soft tissue structures around the heel area
*Immediate weightbearing is allowed in a surgical shoe with limited activities.
Sutures are removed between 10-14 days postoperatively.
Patients return to comfortable tennis shoes gradually between 2 -3 weeks.
Severe pain after plantar fasciotomy is rare although pain is subjective. Many patients need mild postoperative analgesics only after plantar fasciotomy.
