Dr Ned Buckley offers plantar fasciitis surgery known as the partial plantar fascia release procedure. This offers a low-risk and effective surgical treatment option for plantar fasciitis which has not responded to standard care. Plantar fascia surgery is undertaken as day surgery under local or general anaesthesia and takes around 15 minutes to complete. A tiny incision is made on the instep of the foot, and the tight band of the plantar fascia is identified and released. Patients are normally allowed to bear weight immediately following surgery and return to regular activities after approximately 2 weeks. The treatment is usually definitive and patients often experience relief of symptoms almost immediately after surgery.
