Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 Innovative Foot and Ankle

Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy or EPF is a surgery used to treat chronic strain of the plantar fascia. Plantar Fascia is a ligament-like band that runs along the bottom of the foot resulting in pain on the inside of the foot where the arch and heel meet if strained. If medication and devices to control foot movement have not helped, your doctor may suggest EPF. It is an outpatient procedure that takes about an hour at a hospital, same –day surgery or in the doctors’ office. New tissue fills in the place where the new fascia was cut as your foot heals. Wearing shoes with good support and physical therapy often improve recovery. If you suffer pain on the inside of your foot do not hesitate to contact you should have your feet examined.
