I have been treated for PF for almost a year and a half. During that time one podiatrist flatly refused to do surgery because I can still walk. Last week, an orthopedic surgeon told me that he does not like to do any surgery for this problem and if it were his foot, he would endure a LOT of pain before allowing anyone to perform this procedure on him. Can't even find anyone in my city doing EPF; everyone I've talked to says it doesn't allow for enough visualization and has more severe complications if something goes wrong. If the doctors are this hesitant to operate, you might want to wait a while!
