Tenex Health TX Procedure
The Tenex Health TX procedure is a proprietary, non-surgical procedure used to improve conditions cause by Tendinitis. During a minimally invasive Tenex outpatient procedure, damaged tissue is removed without involving an arthroscopic or an open surgical procedure
The objective of this procedure is to relieve chronic pain and improved overall functionality to patients who are suffering as a result of tendon damage.
This advanced treatment used ultra-sound imaging and patented TX MicroTip technology to remove damaged and degenerated tendon tissue. This procedure is performed using a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated. Ultra-sound imaging is used to identify scar tissue in the affected area. A small toothpick sized instrument is inserted into the damaged tendon and delivers ultrasonic energy and remove damaged tissue without disturbing healthy tissue. The Tenex Procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. Typical recover time from this procedure is 4 to 6 weeks. The recovery time is significantly less than a surgical procedure because the surround tissue is not disturbed.
The Tenex Procedure is an alternative treatment for Tendonitis. A patient may select to have a Tenex Procedure in place of cortisone injections, physical therapy, pain medication or even tendon surgery. While all of the aforementioned treatment methods may be used to relieve tendon pain, a Tenex procedure actually removes damaged tissue to treat pain.
