Our Doctor Store

For your convenience, Dr. Wilusz has opened an online store

that you can link through our website. Offered on this site are a multitude of items not generally available at most pharmacies and drug stores. Products available range from biofreeze to cast protectors to fungal nail products.

 

"Our Doctor Store" is a convenient and affordable way to shop for your foot care needs. All orders can be placed from the convenience of your own home and will be shipped directly to you. So, instead of driving to Kroger's, to CVS and back home empty handed, "Our Doctor Store" will have your order shipped to your home withing a couple of business days. Another great aspect of our store is it is easily navigable. The tool bar on the left hand side of the page breaks down products by condition (bunions, heel pain, nail fungus, etc). So if you're dealing with a case of "athlete's foot" you can click on the "athlete's foot" tab on the side bar to look at products specific to fighting that condition.

 

You can link our store directly from our website's homepage @ www.towncenterfootandankle.com

EPAT: Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Treatment

Extracorporeal (meaning outside the body) pulse activated treatment is a form of ultrasound therapy indicated for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions including plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, degenerative tendonopathy, plantar fibromas, Morton's neuromas, hypertrophic scars, chronically stiff joints (hallux rigidus) and even non-unions of bone (fractures or surgeries which have not healed involving bone).

 

The treatment is one of a fixed amplitute and frequency of sound which, when applied to a tissue, stimulates angiogenesis (growth of new blood capillaries), desensitizes the area, and has been found to initiate new cell replication in animal models.

 

The treatment protocol varies from condition to condition, but may help improve the symptoms related to a condition so as to help avoid surgery. This is one modality my office utilizes to manage the symptoms while we identify and treat the cause of your problem.

 

This spicific modality is not yet covered by insurance though it is FDA approved for the aforementioned conditions. Feel free to contact our office to determine if this treatment may be an option for you.
