I have recently become involved with a new and exciting opportunity to address one of the most common and vexing problems in orthopedics – chronic tendon pain. Adapting the treatment used by Opthamologists for years to treat cataracts, we are now able to use ultrasonic energy to definitively treat tendon problems at the elbow, knee and foot.
To date with over 1000 treatments the outcomes have been extremely gratifying, well tolerated and so far, are with out significant complication. For me this is one of the best examples of applying technology to deliver effective care that is also cost effective. I personally think it will change the entire approach to our understanding and treatment of these conditions.
