FAST, which stands for fasciotomy and surgical tenotomy, is a new, non-opeative, FDA-approved treatment option for patients with chronic tendinopathies. At Commonwealth, we've used this technique to successfully treat patients with tennis elbow and golder's elbow, as well as tendonitis in the kneecap, rotator cuff and Achilles tendon.
