Have you tried multiple treatment options? Are you frustrated with your chronic tendon pain? Tenex Health TX could be the procedure you need for rapid pain relief. Unlike medical or physical therapies, Tenex Health TX removes the source of the pain, the damaged tissue, and helps stimulate a healing response. The medical term used by doctors for the Tenex Health TX Procedure is Percutaneous Tenotomy or Percutaneous Fasciotomy.

PRECISELY TARGETS YOUR DAMAGED TISSUE
Your doctor uses ultrasound imaging, just like the kind used to see babies in the womb, to visualize and identify the specific location of the damaged tendon tissue.
GENTLY REMOVES DAMAGED TISSUE
Once the source of your tendon pain is identified, your doctor numbs the area with a local anesthetic, allowing you to stay awake the entire time. Many people say after the numbing process—which feels like a bee sting—they felt only a slight pressure during the procedure (if they felt anything at all). Your doctor then uses gentle ultrasonic energy designed to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue. The ultrasonic energy is applied with the TX MicroTip, which requires only a microincision to reach the damaged tissue. Because the incision is so small and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed.
REQUIRES NO STITCHES
When the procedure is completed, your doctor applies a small adhesive bandage (like a Band-Aid); no stitches are required. Because you are awake during the procedure (no general anesthesia), many people are able to drive home immediately following their procedure.
CAN OFFER NEARLY INSTANT PAIN RELIEF WITH A RAPID RECOVERY
Recovery is rapid with many people being back to normal life within 6 weeks or less. Because the surrounding healthy tissue is not disturbed, and no stitches or general anesthesia is required, there is minimal downtime and less discomfort compared to open surgery. The speed of your recovery depends on the location of your tendinitis and your individual results may vary.
