Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
Dr. Richard Jacoby, a leading Phoenix and Scottsdale podiatrist with Valley Foot Surgeons, is now offering an innovative minimally invasive procedure for chronic tendon pain treatment for Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. The treatment is called FAST, which is short for Focused Aspiration of Scar Tissue, and was developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic. Call (480) 994-5977 for scheduling.
The FAST procedure removes the damaged tendon scar tissue quickly and safely, without disturbing the healthy surrounding tendon tissue. The procedure uses ultrasound to break up and remove the damaged tendon tissue safely with an instrument about the size of a toothpick.
As a curring edge Phoenix podiatrist, Dr. Jacoby constantly strives to utilize modern, effective treatment methods for patients. As the specialty of foot and ankle advances, Valley Foot Surgeons has been expanding its options to maximize successful outcomes. Over the past few years that has included stem cell rich injections, laser treatments, innovative treatments for peripheral neuropathy, and the FAST procedure for chronic tendon pain.
With the FAST procedure, patient down time is minimal. In the past, surgical treatment for chronic tendon conditions involved significant incisions and substantial amounts of time non-weightbearing with the potential for wound healing problems.
Individuals suffering from chronic tendon problems in the foot and ankle such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis should call Valley Foot Surgeons today. The practice offers a full slate of treatment options including medication, injections, bracing, and now the minimally invasive FAST procedure.
