Areas of Treatment
There is no one treatment or procedure for Foot & Ankle Trauma. Our doctors use advanced diagnostic techniques to determine where the injury is and which state-of-the-art treatment will best get you on your way to recovery.
In case if you’ve suffered tendon damage, we might opt for Arthroscopy. We employ an instrument with a camera lens and a light that helps us to see what’s going on inside your foot or ankle. Doctors can then determine what type of tendon repair surgery is a best option to heal your condition and put you out of pain.
Tenjet® is a revolutionary intervention that we use to target and treat the source of your chronic tendon pain. With this groundbreaking procedure, we use a needle-like device that delivers a supersonic stream of water to remove your diseased tendon while sparing healthy tendons.
Using your own blood, we are able to isolate your plasma and concentrate it so it’s full of healthy platelets. We then inject it into the treatment area to use your own healing system – intensified – to release growth boosters that fire up and increase the number of healing cells your body produces.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Using a hand-held device, we deliver shockwaves to your injured tissue as we move it over the trouble area in a circular motion. This activates your body’s self-healing capabilities by stimulating your metabolism. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and encourage the formation of new blood vessels. It also nurtures the healing process through cell regeneration, as well as by breaking up calcification within tendons, which is then reabsorbed by your body.
