In brief: Surgery

As long as you have tried and failed several different types of conservative therapies, then surgery is warranted.
Heel spur surgery can be very successful when performed on the right patient.

In brief: If it is painful

If a heel spur is creating pain for you and conservative treatment has failed then you may consider surgery.
It is usually the plantar fascia creating painand not the spur itself.
