plantar fasciitis surgery

Posted by kay on 3/19/02 at 13:51 (076844)

i've been troubled with this pain for years. i've tried everything. 5 years ago i had the endoscopic surgery. will another surgery help? i have progressed to an unbareable state of pain. what i've tried are. p.t. cortizone injections, epf surgery,stretching,night splints, NSAID drugs, and casting.

How you investigated ESWT. We have used it with great sucess in patients that have had failed heel spur surgery. If you would like any information on our ESWT program please don't hestitate to ask or e-mail me at footcare

i would be interested in it if my insurance covered it but right now they will not. seems they'd rather pay hospital and surgery bills.
i was wondering since i had the endoscopic surgery 5 years ago what is the other surgery, and how is it different?
