Is Surgery recommended for plantar fasciitis?

Surgery may be advised recommended for some patients. However, you must remember that it is not the be-all or end-all for the condition, especially since there are effective nonsurgical methods available. Perhaps, around 95% of plantar fasciitis patients can choose pain relief sans the surgery. You must consider a surgical procedure for plantar fasciitis only if:

  • Conventional non-surgical treatment options do not work
  • Other treatment options you have been trying for at least six months haven’t paid off
  • Your potential to carry out your work and moderate exercise are getting affected due to heel pain
