ESWT in DiabetesPosted by Dr.. Zuckerman on 2/24/01 at 10:52 (039794)
I had a patient come to my office. I had performed miminial incision heel spur surgery on his sister and his wife years ago.
He had the pain for a long time with all kinds of treatments.
Anyway the point is this.
He had good circulation . No nerve problem but there were slow healing ulcerations on his anterior legs. His Blood Glucose was within normal limits.
I performed ESWT on his heel spur and his progress has been excellent. This is a case where if there was no ESWT treatment available then the patient had no other option because surgery was't a good option at all.
So ESWT helped this pateint where there was no other option.
