Tenex

Our practice offers Tenex Health TX™, a safe, quick procedure specially designed for those who are suffering from painful conditions associated with:

  • Tendon damage

  • Pain in the rotator cuff

  • Tennis or Golfer’s elbow

  • Runner’s or Jumper’s knee

  • Achilles tendonitis or Plantar fasciitis.

The Tenex Health TX System is based on advanced technology developed in collaboration with the world renowned Mayo Clinic. It combines ultrasound imaging (which is also used to see a baby in the womb) to identify damaged tissue with the advanced TX MicroTip™ which precisely breaks down and removes only the damaged tissue that causes pain. Removing the damaged tissue allows the tendon to heal and provides pain relief. The Tenex Health TX procedure is not open surgery and can be performed in an office or procedure room in an outpatient surgery center.

Health TX Benefits:

  • Quick pain relief

  • Rapid return to normal activities

  • Local anesthetic used instead of general anesthesia

  • No sutures, no stitches (requires only a small, adhesive bandage)

  • Minimally invasive, not open surgery

  • Covered by most insurances
