When conservative treatments for chronic heel pain fails you, and Plantar Fasciitis becomes a chronic condition it is then diagnosed as Plantar Fasciiosis. Treatment for this is USGPPF, a minimally invasive foot surgery technique in which the patient’s own blood is used to repair the damaged or degenerative plantar fascia tissue in the heel. USGPPF uses a high resolution diagnostic ultrasound to accurately locate and extract the diseased plantar fascia tissue then replace it with growth factors harvested from the patient’s own blood. This procedure occurs through a small, needle-like device creating an ideal environment for regeneration of the plantar fascia. During the outpatient procedure, the patient is under general anesthesia for a short amount of time. The patient is walking immediately although encouraged to limit the amount of standing or walking initially. Regular activity is generally resumed within a few weeks. A series of low-energy shockwave treatments will follow the procedure to accelerate the growth factors.
