Interested in more info

I'm interested in more information on the type of surgery--also did you just have heel pain or did you have arch pain as well?

Thanks.
Sue B.

I had very bad heel pain in the mornings and after periods of rest. The pain was so bad I could hardly walk in the mornings. He called the surgery 'minimal' excision. There was a small puncture wound on the bottom of my heel and he used something to 'erase' the spur. You could hardly even tell I had surgery if you looked at my heel. I have never heard of this type procedure but he did over 150 of these type surgeries last year according to the hospital.
