Following on from a post (Chronic Heel Pain, October 2021) I shared a few weeks ago about the minimally invasive plantar fasciotomy for chronic recalcitrant plantar fasciosis/fasciitis.
A patient presented this week with a problem, involving DJD/OA of the left 2nd MTPJ. She is an existing patient, whom I carried out a plantar fasciotomy eleven years ago on the right foot. She is a nurse and was in marked pain pre-op. She had an excellent outcome and the heel has been pain-free since.
I have included an image I took last week that shows the lack of scarring.
If you have any specific questions or would like to discuss similar cases, please contact me.
