ESWT in San Diego Area

Posted by Anne G on 1/05/03 at 09:32 (104883)

I have been suffering for 7 years with chronic heel pain and I am looking for some relief. Anyone know of a ESWT site near San Diego that is top notch using the Dornier machine?

I would contact the company they can tell you. We have done hundreds of ESWT treatment with the dornier and love the machine very much.

Anne,

You can try calling AKSM at 866-367-3798. I know they are somewhere in Southern CA.

Anne,

I do not know about San Diego, but I am currently going through the approval process with a couple of doctors here in Orange County. Dr. Tanaka in Tustin has both the Dornier and Ossatron and Dr Stephen Smith has the Ossatron in Irvine, CA. Probably about a 70-90 minute drive for you (with no traffic). I like both of them a lot and was referred to them from my other Podiatrist who does not have access to ESWT.

I have about a three year history of heel pain including surgery almost two years ago on my left foot. My other foot has acted up so I am pursuing ESWT instead.

eMail me if you want to talk more.

Thanks.
