Tenex Health TX™ is based on advanced technology developed in collaboration with the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. Tenex Health TX™ combines ultrasound imaging that specifically targets damaged tissue with the advanced TX MicroTip™ which precisely breaks down and removes only the damaged tissue that causes pain. This procedure is not surgery and is performed in an office setting. Its ability to quickly remove scar and calcium makes it a perfect replacement for surgical procedures that typically carry a 30% success rate with significant post-procedure pain and months of recovery.
This procedure offers quick pain relief and a rapid return to normal activities.
There are no sutures. It effectively addresses chronic tendon pain in the shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, and ankles.
Specific conditions treated include:
Achilles Tendinosis & Plantar Fasciitis
TENEX™ tenotomy is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic scarring and calcification of tendons and ligaments. Its unique benefits include rapid recovery and pain relief.
TENEX™ needle tool is guided into the damaged area under ultrasound. The tool is activated by a compressor that creates rapid vibration of the needle and propels a high-pressure jet of water in the treatment area that is then suctioned out. The result is that the scar tissue is broken up gently with vibration and water and removed from the region through suction.
In 10,000 cases studied at the Mayo Clinic, the complication rate was less than 1%.
Tenex Tenotomy is directed under ultrasound and is guided to treat the injured tissues only. This technique makes the treatment both accurate and extremely safe.
