Chronic heel pain is the most commong diagnosis that the doctors at Carolina Foot Specialists see in our practice. A good majority of our patient's respond to conservative treatment with complete resolution of heel pain. A small percentage do have reoccuring heel pain or do not respond to various conservative treatment options.
Dr. Saffer and Dr. Brown are looking into newer state of the art minimally invasive surgery such as Tenex and biologics. We will explore these treatment options during the month of May so that you are fully informed on these options for chronic heel pain.
Please refer to the tenex website and we will follow up next week on more detailed information and our experiences with these treatment options. We pride ourselves in staying current with the newest treatment options for our patients for various foot disorders.
