Plantar Fasciitis Surgery
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain today, affecting more than one million Americans every year. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that extends from the heel to the toes. When that tissue becomes inflamed, it can cause severe pain in the bottom of the heel. The pain often feels worse after periods of inactivity, and your condition can continue to deteriorate over time. For some patients suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis, conservative treatments just aren’t enough. Perhaps stretching no longer alleviates the pain, or icing doesn’t do the trick. Maybe your foot hurts, even when you’re wearing your “comfy” shoes. When plantar fasciitis starts negatively affecting your quality of life, it’s time to consider more aggressive treatments.
At Park Avenue Podiatric Care, we offer the latest innovative techniques for the treatment of chronic and severe plantar fasciitis. Our radio frequency ablation technique is a minimally invasive procedure that treats targeted areas of the damaged fascia, providing better results with lower risk for complications as compared to traditional surgical procedures.
