Tenex Health TX™ is revolutionizing the treatment of tendonitis and soft tissue injuries. This procedure — Fasciotomy and Surgical Tenotomy is a minimally invasive approach for eliminating scar tissue, the source of chronic tendon pain.
Tenex Health technology is used to treat tendonitis in the elbow, hip, knee, ankle, and plantar fasciitis pain in the foot, overall functionality and a significant decrease in pain is exhibited. The patented technology removes the source of pain, which is the damaged tissue, and helps stimulate a renewed healing response. Patient recovery periods can be expected in the range of 4-6 weeks.
How is the Tenex Health TX™ performed?
The procedure is performed in an outpatient surgical environment. Your doctor will use ultrasound imaging to visualize and identify the specific location of the damaged tendon. Then the doctor will numb the area with a local anesthetic, gently applying Tenex Health’s ultrasonic tool to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue. As the required incision is very small and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed, allowing patient recovery to be in the 4-6 week range, as mentioned above. Stitches are not required, so your doctor will only apply a small, adhesive bandage after the procedure. You will be able to go home immediately after the procedure is completed. Best of all, most people can return to their normal daily activities or sport within 6 weeks.
You don’t have to live with tendonitis anymore. Get back to your active life with the Tenex Health TX™ – the new treatment of choice for tendon pain.
