What is a heel joint arthroscopy?

Arthroscopic surgeries are performed using tiny cameras and surgical tools to conduct examinations and make repairs. Using this minimally invasive technique allows for smaller incisions. Patients experience less pain and a faster recovery time using minimally invasive techniques and arthroscopy surgery. 

Heel joint arthroscopy uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to diagnose and treat problems of the feet that stem from the heel region. Your surgeon may recommend heel joint arthroscopy for the following conditions:

  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis
