Although about 90-95% of heel pain cases can recover without the need for surgery there are some chronic conditions that don’t respond to conservative treatments.
At CHPI we have the option for surgery if pain persists aggressively but it is without doubt our last option and we try to avoid it if possible (which is most situations).
Plantar fasciitis sometimes require a lengthening procedure to relieve chronic tension at the heel, there are cases where heel spurs need to be removed and some decompression of nerves required in tarsal tunnel syndrome. Of course this is only after we exhaust all of the conservative treatments!
Have the confidence that at CHPI we have the most comprehensive range of treatment options available including surgery if needed to ensure we fix your heel pain once and for all!
