A Revolutionary Treatment for Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Now there is a solution to treat the non-healing diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) and give patients the lasting results they need. Enabled by the Tenex Health TX System and new TX-Bone MicroTip, it is the only technology that:
- Minimally invasively treats the cause of the ulcer at its root, not just its symptoms
- Enables fast wound healing, in just one treatment
- Gives lasting results without recurrence

Subcutaneous Ultrasonic Needle Treatment for Chronic Refractory Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Independently authored by Drs. Christopher Bromley, DPM, Lewis Freed, DPM, and Devon Glazer, DPM, with support from Trice Medical
We are excited to present an extensively researched white paper documenting the procedural safety, efficacy, and reproducibility of treating diabetic foot ulcers with the Tenex Health TX® System. The study also discusses the technique, procedure guidelines, and rationale. Click to read.
The Burden of the Disease
Until now, treatments for diabetic foot ulcers were ineffective, with a recurrence rate in patients as high as 65%.1 A significant 40-80% of diabetic foot ulcers became infected.2 Over 25% of patients required amputation.3
A Solution to Recurrence
Achieving full wound healing is one of the most challenging aspects for many patients. Other treatments result in high recurrence rates of 40-65%, whereas TX-Bone has shown less than 5% recurrence in the patients treated.
The Tenex Health TX System with TX-Bone MicroTip offer DFU patients additional benefits, including:
- A minimally invasively, subcutaneous procedure performed through a small incision
- Spares healthy soft tissue while cutting and removing the diseased tissue
- Safe for patients
- Quick procedure time
- Only one procedure required
- Effective for many types of ulcers
- Uses local anesthetic
- Performed in an out-patient setting
- Decreases the cost of care
