Customer Question
I have moderate calcification...

I have moderate calcification at the insertion point (in both feet) as well as small bone spurs and Haglund's deformity. I have received 3 opinions from 3 different doctors and none of them agree with the best next step for me. Can you tell me your opinion: Tenex procedure, PRP or Surgery?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, 3 doctors and Motrin for swelling, Tylenol for pain

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No recent injuries, 3 or more years

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing.

I thin the confusion is from seeing different types of doctors, correct?

They certainly were not all orthopedists?

What are the three types of doctors?

No. All doctors were in the same orthopedic office

are you still there helping me?

Then I don't think they are trying to compete with each other

PRP is a much different procedure.

You will have to allow time between each post.

I have no control over site function, OK?

They are all supportive of their practice partners but do support different procedures. Based on the location and severity of my calcification/damage, my question is simply, what would a 4th doctor recommend (blindly of course since you can not see the ultrasound).
Orthopedist: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

Well, yes, I can not give you a medical opinion since I can not examine you, and what we do here is answer questions.

So let's say your question is, what should be done first, what is least invasive, what is least costly and likely to have the least side effects....how is that?
