Cutting Edge Technology
We believe in advancing our practice through science and research. Our physicians look to stay abreast of new cutting edge technology and treatment modalities. Our specialized services include the use of Digital Radiography (DR), Sonic Shockwave therapy (ESWT), Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and BioDefence Amniotic Stem Cell therapy to treat complex, non-healing issues for bone, tendon and ligament disorders. Our services also include state of the art wound care regeneration grafts & treatments for non-healing diabetic ulcers.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave (ESWT)
ESWT is used to treat chronic ligament and tendon problems (ex. plantar fasciitis/heel spur syndrome, and Achilles tendon). During this non-invasive surgical procedure, sonic waves are directed at the area of pain using a device similar to that currently used in non-surgical treatment of kidney stones.
Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging in which digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include: a shorter time frame since there is no chemical processing images are immediately ready for preview, and images can be digitally transferred, enhanced, and saved to the patient’s record.
Dr. Hurst’s practice has expanded rapidly over the course of his 12 years in Central Texas. With the large volume of patients in the practice, Dr. Hurst is very pleased to have welcomed Dr. Keith McSpadden to Foot Specialists of Cedar Park & Georgetown. Dr. McSpadden is excited to bring his surgical and clinical expertise, along with his caring attitude, to the local community.
Dr. Hurst is actively involved with his family and enjoys spending time with them. He enjoys hunting, fishing and scuba diving in his spare time and also serves on the Board for the Samaritan Clinic, providing free care to those in need of it. In addition, he is Medical Director of Hill Country Surgery Center.
Custom Orthotics and Shoes
All offices offer biomechanical analysis of patients and athletes for custom all-sport orthotics. Many patients are enjoying the new selection of shoes with custom orthotics and custom fashion and dress shoes.
Diabetic Shoes and Diabetic Insoles
Diabetic patients that have decreased or no sensation in the foot, greatly benefit from the protection of diabetic shoes and protective insoles. Dr. Hurst continues to provide a large selection of diabetic shoes with custom measuring for foot type and size.
In-Office Computerized Vascular Screening for Circulation
To screen patients with diabetes or anyone with a decrease in circulation, the doctors use a PAD system to compare pressures in the thigh, calf, and toes to arm pressures to evaluate any drop in circulation within the lower extremity and foot. “The peripheral arterial disease (PAD) computer system allows us to recognize patients that have high risk diabetic feet and we work closely with interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons that perform procedures to improve circulation to the foot.”
