An Atkins procedure (namely a full thickness "L" incision on the lateral surface of the calcaneus with creation of a flap) should be preferred, not only because the neurologic structures, in particular the sural nerve, are protected along with Achilles tendon and the plantar fascia, (4) but also since it permits useful localization of the calcaneal insertion of the extensors retinaculum and talocalcaneal ligament (Fig.
