The doctors at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists continue to offer the latest technology available to allow our patients a quick, straightfoward and minimally invasive technique to return them to their daily acitivities from conditions like plantar fasciitis.
With this percutaneous procedure, we make approximately 20 to 25 holes with a needle throught the skin to the level of the plantar fascia in a grid pattern. We would then introduce the Topaz probe and release a Coablation energy force in each hole locations, breaking up scar tissue and increasing vascularity to the plantar fascia region. Topaz procedures have also been associated with increased strength in the plantar fascia insertion and decreased small fiber pain in the region of the plantar fascia insertion
