With Dr. Zuckerman I have treated Patients with the orbasone and we put the foot to sleep before the treatment.

No anesthesia is used for the Sonocur device. The pulses are of low enough energy to be 'comfortably uncomfortable'. By not using anesthesia, the patient directs the treatment technician to the most tender spot. Each treatment takes approx. 8 minutes and there is no 'recovery time' after the treatment. Patients can drive themselves home and continue about with their normal activities.

Ossatron requires anesthesia!!

The orbasone has the ability to use low energy and high energy for treatment. In my office we use a local anesthesia for foot and ankle and knees. For upper extremity we don't use a local anesthesia.

Dr. Z--what sorts of knee problems do you treat with ESWT? A friend of mine has some knee problems and it would be great to mention a possible solution for her. Thanks!
