Re: Plantar Fascitis Surgery

From the description you gave, it seems that conservative treatment has been quite comprehensive. As far as giving you an assurance of the result, I qualify what I tell my patients. No doctor can promise 100% success to all their patients. I feel that psychologically, the patient should understand the afterward and the length of time it takes.

Having said that, it would be inappropriate to do surgery without the expectation that it would improve the patient's situation. The purpose is to relieve pain and restore function.

You should discuss this with your doctor and get whatever other information you need to make your decision.

Good luck
