Tendon injuries are very common in the foot and ankle. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential to prevent chronic degeneration or even rupture of the affected tendon. By evaluating the tendon with ultrasound and or MRI we are able to detect the presence and stage of the injury. The Foot & Ankle Institute utilizes state-of-the-art technologies to treat tendon injuries. We offer the non-invasive technology of ESWT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) to stimulate repair of the injured tendon and when necessary utilize minimally invasive techniques like Topaz topazinfo.com and Tenex Health TX tenexhealth.com.
Too often tendon injuries are inadequately managed resulting in permanent disability. We pride ourselves in our tendon rehabilitation programs to individualize appropriate treatment.
