Tenex Procedure for Chronic Tendinitis
Tenex is a minimally invasive treatment of chronic tendon pain used when conservative measures such as NSAIDS, physical therapy and cortisone injections have failed. Most commonly done for medial/lateral epicondylitis, patellar tendinitis and Achilles tendinitis. Tenex is an ultrasonic tool used to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue.
What to Expect
- Dr. Durkin will use ultrasound imaging (the same non-invasive technology used to see babies in the womb) to visualize and identify the specific location of the damaged tendon.
- Dr. Durkin will numb the area with a local anesthetic, gently applying Tenex Health’s ultrasonic tool to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue.
- As the required incision is minimally-invasive and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed.
- Stitches are not required, a small adhesive bandage will be applied after the procedure.
- You will be able to go home immediately after the procedure is completed.
