Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy

Posted by Trish on 5/09/99 at 00:00 (006649)

Does anyone know a good podiatrist who performs this surgery in Canada? I live in Edmonton and saw Dr. Hartley Miltchin in Toronto a couple of years ago.....Has anyone had this surgery from him...Does anyone know a Dr. in Western Canada who routinely does this procedure?

Hi all,

I had epf on both feet a couple of years ago. A year or so apart. I am still having pain in both feet, the right more so than the left. I am learning to wear birkenstocks and dansko for relief. I went back to my doc and he said I should not have any pain at all. I said that I always have had pain. I take that back the month of May was very nice because I walked pain free. (I have no idea what I have done different) Anyway, the doc said that I probably have tarsal tunnel syndrome. I have been researching that and I don't exhibit any symptons of that. Though I do have soreness and some swelling along the side of my ankle. Any ideas out there? Any help for relief?

Help
Laura

I recently heard of a Dr. Russel in the Sunridge Professional Building in Calgary. Apperently there are other Specialists/Sergeons there as well.
Have never seen him personally my self, my doc wouldn't refer me.

Good luck,
let me know how it goes!!
