Unlocking Freedom from Plantar Fasciitis: Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy (EPF)

Plantar fasciitis is a relentless companion, causing daily pain and disrupting active lifestyles. While conservative treatments often provide relief, persistent cases demand an effective and minimally invasive solution. Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy (EPF), expertly performed by Dr. Schottenstein, offers rapid relief and a swift recovery.

The Minimally Invasive Marvel: EPF

EPF is a testament to modern medical innovation. It’s designed for individuals who have battled plantar fasciitis with conservative treatments to no avail. This minimally invasive procedure is the key to unlocking a pain-free life. The procedure involves creating two small incisions in the foot, each measuring less than a centimeter. Through these tiny openings, a camera is gently inserted into the foot, providing a clear view of the tight plantar fascia band causing discomfort. With precision and expertise, Dr. Schottenstein releases the tension in the fascia band. The incisions are meticulously sutured, typically requiring just 1-2 sutures. Remarkably, the entire procedure is completed in under an hour, making it a convenient option for those seeking relief from the burdens of plantar fasciitis.

Immediate Mobility: A Post-Surgery Boon

One of the remarkable aspects of EPF is the immediate post-surgery experience. Patients are placed in a CAM boot walker right after the procedure and are encouraged to walk right away. This rapid return to mobility is a testament to the minimally invasive nature of EPF, allowing patients to regain their freedom without extensive downtime.
