The tendon pain many of us feel in the shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle or foot can be caused by a number of factors, including trauma (damage to the tendon from a hit, twist, or pull to the joint) or repetitive motion (damage to the tendon from overuse in work, exercise, or activity). Eventually, damaged tissue in the tendon will limit our ability to move the joint and perform the activities that we need or like to do. If a damaged tendon is not treated, joint pain will likely become worse over time.
Tenex Health TX™ is a minimally invasive technology designed to precisely break down and extract damaged tendon tissue and is based upon advanced technology developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic. Since the surrounding healthy tissue is not disturbed, patients enjoy less discomfort and quicker recovery times versus traditional open surgical procedures. Tenex Health TX achieves the same goal as open surgery but is minimally invasive and performed using a local anesthetic, in a nonsurgical setting such as a physician’s office or an outpatient surgery center. A quick, safe and effective way to provide relief for individuals who silently suffer from swimmer’s shoulder; golfer’s or tennis elbow; runner’s or jumper’s knee; Achilles Tendonitis; or plantar fasciitis, most patients return to normal activities within 2-6 weeks.
