With Tenex Health TX™, patients no longer have to put their lives on hold for surgery. This state-of-the-art procedure combines ultrasound imagining with the uniquely designed MicroTip™ to target unhealthy tissue near the tendon for removal. A unique method of tissue restoration, Tenex Health TX™ has been effective in treating the Achilles tendon an Plantar fascia, as well as many other commonly injured tendon and soft tissue areas. In a minimally-invasive procedure that lasts no more than 20 minutes, your surgeon can restore a tendon to its original healthy, pain-free state.
Because Tenex Health TX™ requires a tiny microincision (about 3mm) and only interferes with unhealthy tissue, procedures do not typically require a long recovery period. Stitches are not required after the procedure and most patients can return to normal activity between 2 and 6 weeks after surgery.
While doctors have been using ultrasound as a diagnostic tool for about 50 years, few surgeons have adapted ultrasound into their procedures. By incorporating ultrasound imaging, Tenex Health TX™ lets surgeons view the procedure in real time. Ultrasound magnifies and projects an image of the tissue so that the doctor can detect damaged tissue without making a large incision. With an unimpeded view of the procedure, the surgeon applies the MicroTip™ tool to damaged tissue and leaves healthy tissue unharmed.
