# of Orthopedic physicians using ESWT for P.F.

Posted by Pauline on 3/16/04 at 17:16 (147150)

I don't think Elliott touched on this subject, but I think it would be interesting to know the number of doctors using it for P.F. both Orthopedic and Podiatric.

How quickly are the numbers climbing?

I have no idea how many podiatric and orthopedic surgeons are actually doing ESWT. Healthronic's claims that over 10,000 ESWT procedures have been done since their pma completion. Healthronics claims that over three thousand doctor have been trained. I know I personally have trained over 300 doctors on the dornier epos ultra

The Sonorex Sonocur is used more heavily by the orthopedic community and as such is used by a number of orthopods for PF. The reason for the ortho interest has been the lateral epicondylitis indication with the expectation of a body wide indication at some point.
