What is Plantar Fasciitis Surgery?

Dr. Manson performs Minimal Incision Surgery (MIS) in the office to help you get rid of your plantar fasciitis that just won’t go away with conservative treatment.
At Oregon Institute of Foot Care, Dr. Manson can usually resolve most cases of plantar fasciitis with conservative treatments such as icing, stretching, custom orthotics, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and steroid injections. When those approaches do not provide relief for plantar fasciitis, Dr. Manson may recommend a more aggressive option. This includes a safe, minimally invasive, and effective procedure called a percutaneous plantar fasciotomy.

What is the Cost of Plantar Fasciitis Surgery?

Plantar fasciitis surgery is usually fully or partially covered by insurance. Coverage by insurance is always checked prior to performing the surgery so you are aware of any costs to you.

What is Involved in Plantar Fasciitis Surgery?

Percutaneous plantar fasciotomy involves releasing a small portion of the plantar fascia just past its origin as it comes off the heel bone. This is usually the area where the tissue has abnormally thickened, tightened, calcified, and scarred; the pathology which in whole or in part causes the patient’s ongoing pain.
Dr. Manson performs the procedure under local anesthesia in our comfortable office, Oregon Institute of Foot Care. The incision he makes is less than 2mm in length, about the size of a keyhole. Dr. Manson is careful not to completely disrupt the entire plantar fascia, which is an essential structure for arch stability.

What is the Recovery Process?

As a minimally invasive procedure, percutaneous plantar fasciotomy offers many advantages and comes without the patient challenges associated with traditional surgeries. In addition to reduced discomfort and recovery time, the benefits of this procedure include:

  • Walking on the surgery foot day of surgery with no crutches
  • Local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia
  • Lower infection risk
  • Barely visible scarring
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Shorter surgery time
  • No surgery center or hospital
  • Lower cost compared to surgery center or hospital
