Will i need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?
MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF?" I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?
Surgery: The retinaculum is a band that holds the peroneus muscle tendons down against the outside aspect of the foot. It provides a tunnel through which the tendons maintain their position and fulcrum action. Surgery is the only way to correct this problem. Since the retinaculum is ligamentous and has no true blood supply it cannot heal itself and thus surgical repair is necessary. See you foot doctor!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI on foot showed complete tear of central cord of plantar fascia with lateral and medial fascia intact with 2cm fibroma in arch. How to treat this?
Torn Plantar fascia: You should be immobilized for a short time to take pressure off the injury, but this is a ligament tear, and rest and possible anti-inflammatory therapy (including possible cortisone injections) would be of benefit. The ligament does not need to be repaired; in fact, a 'controlled tear' of the tendon is the preferred surgical method for treating plantar fasciitis. You will likely need orthotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
