TendoNova therapy offers a promising approach to treating tendinopathy, a debilitating condition characterized by chronic tendon degeneration and failed healing. Unlike traditional conservative treatments, which may provide only temporary relief, TendoNova therapy targets the underlying causes of tendinopathy to promote effective healing and restore function. By utilizing innovative techniques and modalities tailored to each patient’s specific needs, TendoNova therapy aims to expedite recovery and alleviate symptoms, ultimately improving quality of life and enabling patients to return to their normal activities pain-free.

Surgical Procedures

At Dovetail Orthopedics, we take a comprehensive approach to foot and ankle care, prioritizing the resolution of underlying issues to achieve lasting results and restore mobility and confidence. We aim to address all foot concerns during the same procedure whenever feasible, but some conditions may require staged surgeries for optimal outcomes. It’s essential to note that surgical interventions carry potential risks, including infection and implant-related complications, and recovery may vary for each individual. Our team is dedicated to ensuring the safety and efficacy of every treatment plan, tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.
