I am considering ESWT.Are there any negative side effects I should be aware of?How important is the skill of the doctor in having a successful outcome?

There is very little risk with ESWT. Some patients will have some swelling,slight black and blue. Some will have pain after the procedure.
Most patients will have improve very quickly with the dornier epos. There is a learning curve with any procedure. The pre evaluation is very important for proper patient selection. The post treatment care is very important. ESWT is both a skill and an art.
