Foot Pain Center of Kansas City Offering New Procedure for Relief from Heel Pain

Have you tried everything but the pain won’t stop? Your feet are literally killing you and you are tired of costly remedies and dashed hopes of relief? Every time you mention your pain you get a battalion of suggestions…”you should try”: cortisone injections, rolling your foot on golf ball, shock wave or platelet rich plasma (PRP), yoga, eat more yogurt, heat activated ointments, pain creams, ice baths, massage, and the list goes on. Some of these may give you temporary relief, but to plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis pain you really need to address the source of the pain.
Dr. Jacob B. Goldstein, a podiatrist at Foot Pain Center of Kansas City, has been using a brand new procedure and getting REAL results. This procedure removes the damaged tendon tissue (a.k.a. the source of the pain). Once the damaged tendon is removed, your body can begin to heal and you can get back to doing the activities you love pain free.

The procedure is called Tenex Heath TX. Dr. Goldstein uses ultrasound imaging, just like the kind used to see babies in the womb, to pinpoint the specific location of the damaged tissue. He then numbs the area with a local anesthetic and makes a small incision and inserts the TX MicroTip directly into the damaged tissue. The TX MicroTip delivers ultrasonic energy into the damaged tissue. This breaks down the damaged tissue making it easy to remove. Because the incision is so small and the TX MicroTip is so precise, only the damaged tissue is removed and the surrounding healthy tissue is left completely unharmed.

Because the incision is so tiny, you won’t have any stitches, just a small Band-Aid and you can go home immediately after the procedure. Because only the damaged portion of the tissue is removed, your downtime and discomfort are minimal. Light duty for a while, but you should be able to be back to normal in 4-6 weeks.

We are so pleased with the results of this procedure for our patients! We encourage them to tell everyone and hope to help as many people as possible get relief from heel pain. If you want more information about this procedure and what we do at Foot Pain Center of Kansas City, please contact us and we will be happy to help you and your feet!
