Excision: After this lenth of time & failure of conservative rx, i think excision is a good way 2 go. It's simple & safe in proper hands. In my series of 45= most better in recovery. They go hame happy & I have had no returns or complications. Choose ur ortho or gen surgeon carefully & check on their experience & outcomes.
