Endoscopic release of plantar fasciitis–a benign procedure?

Jerosch J. Foot Ankle Int 2000 Jun;21(6):511-3

This is a case report of a patient suffering from subcalcaneal pain syndrome due to plantar fasciitis that was resistant to non surgical treatment. After endoscopic partial release of the plantar fascia the patient was pain free for several weeks, before he became symptomatic again. This new pain was located more proximally. An MRI study showed a stress reaction of the calcaneus.
