TOPAZ Treatment


Explore how TOPAZ treatment offers relief for chronic pain associated with conditions like Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis. Tailored for patients who haven't responded to conservative treatments, TOPAZ is a cutting-edge procedure designed to address persistent issues affecting the tissues supporting the feet or ankles.

Using the TOPAZ MicroDebrider, a minimally invasive device, the procedure targets the affected area with radio-frequency energy, stimulating tissue healing and promoting blood flow. Typically performed in-office under light sedation, the treatment takes approximately 20 minutes, offering a quicker recovery compared to more invasive options.

Before undergoing TOPAZ treatment, patients undergo a thorough evaluation to ensure the chronic nature of their condition and determine the suitability for the procedure. Diagnostic imaging may be conducted to confirm the source of discomfort and assess the tissues to be treated.

TOPAZ treatment is effective for conditions like plantar fasciitis and heel pain caused by factors such as foot arch problems or excessive heel pressure. Following the procedure, post-operative care involves wearing a brace or walking boot, transitioning to supportive shoes, and possibly using orthotics to alleviate pressure on the treated area.

With a success rate of approximately 80 percent, TOPAZ treatment offers long-term relief from ligament and tendon issues in the feet or ankles. By following post-procedure instructions and maintaining foot health practices, patients can minimize the risk of recurring pain and enjoy improved mobility and comfort.

Whether you're experiencing persistent foot pain or seeking alternatives to conservative treatments, TOPAZ treatment may offer a solution to alleviate discomfort and enhance your quality of life. Consult with a podiatrist to explore personalized options suitable for your condition.
