I agree with Gina...perhaps the opinion of a good ortho. surgeon would be best. Podiatrists can be much to eager. However, if you are looking for a podiatrist for surgery in the Texas area I believe if you check the old postings you will find the name of the podiatrist who developed the Endoscopic Plantar Facsiiotomy procedure and he also invented the instruments. One woman wrote that she flew from Seattle to Houston to get him to do her EPF. His name is Dr. Stephen Barrett. But before doing anything so drastic I'd suggest total rest...it will never heal if you continue to stand on concrete. Let us know what you decide and how it all turns out. Rhonda
