The authors have analyzed 652 cases in which an endoscopic plantar fasciotomy was performed. These procedures were performed and clinically evaluated by 25 different surgeons, who completed an accredited cadaveric training symposium. In connection with each endoscopic plantar fasciotomy performed, the participating surgeons provided patient data on evaluation forms which were subsequently submitted to the authors. The results of this study demonstrate that the endoscopic plantar fasciotomy has become an established procedure with a high rate of success. Additionally, the procedure is minimally traumatic, and allows patients to resume regular activities quickly with less pain or discomfort than traditional methods of surgical management.
