Houston Podiatrist Answers If Heel Spur Must Be Removed

Houston Podiatrist Dr. Andrew Schneider answers if a Heel Spur needs to be removed with surgery when someone is suffering from Plantar Fasciitis or Heel pain. A heel spur is a protrusion of bone that does not often cause the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. If the natural fat cushioning wears down, there could be pressure from the heel spur itself and surgery to remove a heel spur may be necessary.
