The doctors at the Reston, Manassas and Leesburg Foot and Ankle Centers have a deep understanding of the root causes of heel pain, as well as the best way to treat it. Local Reston and Manassas heel pain sufferers no longer have to worry about the consequences of tendon damage thanks to the Tenex Health TX System.
Developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, this procedure involves the use of ultrasound imaging coupled with the TX MicroTip; a tool designed to break down and remove damaged tissue with the utmost precision, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact.
Once the damaged tissue is extracted, the tendon can fully heal, effectively eliminating the pain.
Unlike many other tendon repair operations, this advanced technique requires only a minor incision. Reston and Manassas heel pain sufferers can have this performed as a minor outpatient procedure, often even with the patient wide awake.
After identifying the primary source of the pain, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area. The ultrasonic waves breaking down the injured tissue only feels like a slight pressure.
For Reston and Manassas heel pain patients who desire to rid themselves of their chronic discomfort, contact Reston Foot and Ankle Center at (703) 437-6333 to learn more about this advanced procedure.
