heel spur surgery

Posted by Lacy on 6/11/04 at 13:50 (152760)

I have had a heel spur for almost a year now and I'm training for a half-marathon, hoping to do a full in the near future. I was considering going through surgery to have it removed. The only problem is I've heard some awful things about this procedure. Any recommendations?

I would recommend ESWT . This is a non-invasive procedure with none of the complications that can happen with heel spur and or plantar fascia release. IF you would like additional information about this procedure feel free to ask and or contact Dr. Zuckerman at (email removed)
