I am seeing a Orthopedic surgeon (fellowship in foot and ankle surgery). Have had PF for 4 years and it has continued to get worse. Tried all the usual remedies. The surgeon says he does not release the fascia during his surgery. He said he takes a triangular shape wedge of the fascia out (about 1") just forward of the heel and over a nerve that runs across the foot. Says his successs rate is about 70% and that not much chance of making it any worse. Anyone hear of this type of treatment. He is well thought of in our city.Please email me if you have ever heard of this.
