Default Re: Best treatment for small plantar fibroma?

Corticosteriod injections are the way to go. Kenacort (triamcinolone) is the best one, because it's tissue wasting effect, normally a negative side effect, is beneficial in this case.

Injected with needling, in the dense fibroma, with local anaesthetic for dilution (and kindness) will shrink the fibromas.

If the fibromas are very large, and the fascia is tight, sometimes a plantar fascia release is warranted. These can be done in a day surgery, with immediate ambulation.

Cheers
