In brief: 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.

3 minute procedure, recovery in 30 mins. Radio frequency will thereafter provide wonderful extended relief.
