Microsurgery For Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

Persistent heel pain, usually most painful with the first steps of the day and walking after periods of inactivity.

Microsurgery Treatment Options For Plantar Fasciitis

Minimally invasive procedures include Tenex, Topaz, and Tenjet.

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

  • TENEX

    • Tenex is a minimally invasive treatment option that can be done under light sedation in-office. This revolutionary procedure uses ultrasonic waves to break up the diseased tissue, scar tissue, and calcifications in the plantar fascia that is causing pain. With a local anesthetic in the heel, a small wand is inserted into the fascia and is guided ultrasonically to get remove the injured tissues while leaving the healthy tissues intact and increasing blood supply to the region to speed healing time. No stitches are necessary. 
    • This procedure is outpatient and takes about 20-30 minutes. 
    • Downtime is about 1 week in a walking boot, although walking is allowed.
    • Normal activities can be resumed one week after surgery. 
  • TOPAZ

    • Topaz Coblation Therapy uses a special needle-like wand that harnesses radiofrequency waves to gently release the plantar fascia. Small micro-tears are created in a grid pattern about a half-centimetre apart to increase blood flow to the affected area. This is done in conjunction with stem cell therapy. This treatment reactivates the healing process by stimulating repair to the damaged tissue. No stitches are necessary.
    • This procedure is outpatient and takes about 20-30 minutes. 
    • Downtime is about 1 week in a walking boot although, walking is allowed.
    • Normal activities can be resumed one week after surgery. 
  • ENDOSCOPIC PLANTAR FASCIOTOMY

    • Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy (EPF) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where one or two small incisions are made at the base of the plantar fascia near the heel bone. These incisions are less than a centimetre long each. A specialized scope or camera is inserted under the fascia and is used as a guide to cut the tightest part of the fascia near the heel bone. Two sutures are used to close the incisions and are removed in the office about 10 days after the procedure.
    • Local and sedation anesthesia is used.
    • Downtime is about 1 week in a walking boot, although walking is allowed.
    • Normal activities can be resumed one week after surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: When your foot is in the relaxed position while you sleep, it causes the tissues of the plantar fasciia to contract and when you wake up and take those first steps the tissue stretches and this cause the pain you feel.

There is a piece of tissue that covers the calf muscles and it extends down into the bottom of your foot. When one end of the tissue is too tight it causes pain at the other end. If we loosen the tissue in your calf by stretching it, it will stop the pulling on the bottom of your foot and relieve the pain. 

When your foot is in a relaxed position while you sleep, the tissues of the plantar fascia will contract and when you wake up and take those first steps the tissue stretches and causes the pain you feel.

Yes. Continuing to stretch, warm up before exercise, and wear good shoes is key to prevention of plantar fasciitis.
