Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS) occurs when the tibial nerve in the foot is compressed while traveling through the tarsal tunnel. The Atlas Institute proudly offers patients treatment for tarsal tunnel release in Denver.
What is Tarsal Tunnel Release?
Tarsal tunnel release surgery is designed to relieve pressure on the affected nerve by releasing some of the inflamed tissue and relieving compression on it. During surgery, an incision is made along one side of the ankle and through layers of tissue until the affected nerve appears. If there is any scarring or other material blocking its path, it will be carefully removed before stitching up and closing.
