Bernard Morrey, MD
“One of the things that I find most interesting and maybe even exciting about the FAST Technique is that it appears to hold the possibility that we can treat one of the most common afflictions of the elbow in a definitive manner.”
Joshua Hackel, MD
“The TX1 Technology can be used in multiple areas of the body, including the rotator cuff, the lateral and medial epicondyle, the quadriceps and patellar tendon, and the Achilles tendon. All these areas are superficial and allow the FAST Technique to be an effective, new treatment option.”
Matt Thornburg, MD
“The FAST Technique really provides an opportunity to treat chronic tendonosis in a way that we haven’t been able to do in the past. It’s safe; it’s easy. The patients don’t experience much post treatment pain. I think it’s going to be as effective as any treatment that we have. It’s an exciting, emerging technology.”
Joyce Koh, MD
“The FAST Technique actually provides the means of targeting the lesion and is consistent with previously believed methods of treating tendonosis. It provides the means to debride the unhealthy tissue and to create an environment for new and healthier tissue to grow.”
