Home » Services » Tenex Health TX System

The Tenex Health TX System is an innovative medical technology used in orthopedics and sports medicine. Using ultrasonic energy, it offers a minimally invasive solution for treating chronic tendon pain by targeting and removing damaged tissue.

What Is Tenex Health TX System?

The Tenex Health TX System is a cutting-edge technology used to address chronic tendon pain. Through a minimally invasive procedure known as percutaneous tenotomy, it uses ultrasonic energy to target and remove damaged tissue within tendons. This process, performed through a small incision under local anesthesia, promotes faster recovery than traditional surgery. By selectively removing diseased tissue while preserving healthy structures, the Tenex Health TX System offers a less invasive alternative to treat conditions like tendinosis and tendonitis.

Conditions That May Necessitate Tenex Health TX System:

  • Chronic tendinosis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tendon-related injuries
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • Patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee)
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis

How Tenex Health TX System Works

The Tenex Health TX System uses ultrasonic energy to precisely target and remove damaged tissue within tendons. During the procedure, a specialized handheld device is used to deliver ultrasonic energy to the affected tendon. This energy is focused on the diseased tissue, causing it to break down into small fragments without harming the surrounding tissue. These fragments are removed from the body through a small incision, typically made under local anesthesia.

Ultrasonic energy disrupts the molecular bonds within the damaged tissue, effectively breaking it down into microscopic particles. As a result, the body’s natural healing processes can more efficiently remove the damaged tissue and promote the regeneration of healthy tendon cells. By minimizing trauma to surrounding structures and preserving healthy tissue, the Tenex Health TX System offers patients a minimally invasive alternative to traditional tendon surgery.

  • Persistent tendon pain despite conservative treatments
  • Limited range of motion in the affected joint
  • Tenderness and swelling around the tendon
  • Pain worsens with activity or movement
  • Difficulty performing daily activities due to tendon discomfort
  • Gradual worsening of symptoms over time
  • The presence of scar tissue within the tendon
  • Recurrent or chronic tendon injuries

The Recovery Process After Tenex Health TX System

After the Tenex Health TX System procedure, your recovery typically involves minimal downtime. You may experience mild side effects like temporary swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site, which subside within a few days. Most patients can return to their regular daily routines quickly, with noticeable improvements in pain and function over time. However, individual experiences may vary, so it’s essential to communicate any concerns or unusual symptoms with your healthcare provider promptly.
