Calcified Achielles Tendon and ESWT

Posted by Jim R. on 3/01/00 at 00:00 (016679)

I am considering undergoing ESWT by Dr. Gordon for a calcified achilles tendon. In 1997 I underwent a surgical removal of a bone spur, via a posterior incision. This was also described as a Haglund's deformity. Since that time I have been active in sports and running and unfortunately my achilles tendon has gone on to calcify at the insertion point. This was confirmed radiographically.
I have recently been in conversation with Dr. Gordon in Toronto regarding ESWT and I am strongly considering having this treatment. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or suggestions that anyone has. Also, how can I get in touch with Dr. Zuckerman? Thanks in advance for any response.

Jim

I have done two cases for painful achilles tendonits. Short terms results have been great. So long as the area is point pt the better the results.

I have a torn achilles tendon, achilles tendonitis, Bursitis & a heel spur on my right heel. Would I be a candidate for your treatment?
