A new, minimally traumatic endoscopic approach to plantar fasciotomy has been developed by the authors. This technique can be performed comfortably under a local anesthetic. Patients are immediately weightbearing and all returned to regular type shoes on the 3rd postoperative day. An earlier return to regular activity and work, with less pain and patient discomfort was found, as compared with traditional heel spur surgery techniques.
