Patient Benefits

  • Clinically proven to remove tendon pain for 85% of patients

  • Recovery of 6-8 weeks or less to return to normal activities

Medically known as Percutaneous Tenotomy or Percutaneous Fasciotomy, the procedure using Tenex Health TX technology combines sophisticated ultrasound imaging to pinpoint damaged tendon tissue along with the advanced TX MicroTip, which precisely breaks down and extracts the damaged tissue that causes tendon pain. When the damaged tissue is removed and there is increased blood flow, the body stimulates a healing response.
