Dr ED

Thank you for being patient and answering my questions. I am just very hesistant to do the surgery my Foot and ankle ortho wants to implement.

Another question about tarsal tuunel release surgery you have stated for me to stay away from. Is it avoidable for me to have the tarsal tunel release to do the tenosynovectomy of the FHL and FDL tendons?

John:
If you are satisfied that you have tried all of the conservative treatments for the FDL and FHL, then consider the tenosynovectomy.
