Plantar Fibromatosis Treatment in New Jersey

Plantar fibromatosis is a rare condition in which benign (non-cancerous) tumors called plantar fibromas grow on the bottom (plantar surface) of the foot. It can be present on one or both feet.

Symptoms include:

  • Pain
  • Noticeable lump in the arch that is firm to the touch and may grow over time
  • Multiple fibromas may develop

Treatment may include cortisone injections; however, this will depend upon your level of pain and the size and location of the fibromas. If you are in pain surgery may be encouraged

Endoscopic Plantar Fasciotomy

This minimally invasive procedure uses a camera to assist surgical correction of the plantar fascia.

It is important to note that even with surgery, the fibroma may grow back and complications may include hammertoes and flat feet.

There are many advantages to having your arch pain evaluated and treated by the experienced and highly skilled surgeons at Advanced Foot & Ankle. Some of these advantages are:

Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment

This is one of the newest treatments for plantar fasciitis or “heel spur” syndrome. A non-invasive, out-patient procedure that is an alternative to surgery, it sends high energy pulses of acoustic waves into the bone and soft tissue, which allows the body to regenerate blood vessels to heal the plantar fascia. This process does not require any form of incision or sedation.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections

Platelet rich plasma is a groundbreaking treatment currently very popular in professional athletics. It consists of a special mixture of blood cells used to treat tendon and ligament damage. The physicians of Advanced Foot and Ankle Surgeons also uses this technology for other pathologies, such as plantar fasciitis and complicated wounds. Our understanding and use of PRP demonstrates one of the ways we stay on top of the current treatment therapies in the world of medicine.
