The Tenex Health TX technology has been clinically proven to improve tendonitis in the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle and plantar fasciitis pain in the foot, dramatically decreasing pain and improving overall functionality– all without the need for traditional open surgery or arthroscopic surgery. The highly effective treatment uses ultra-sound imaging and and a tiny probe to provide relief with less pain and minimal downtime. Unlike medicine or injections that mask the problem, this procedure eliminates it by removing the cause of your pain.
What’s it like?
Once the source of your tendon pain is identified, Dr. Weiss numbs the area with a local anesthetic, allowing you to stay awake the entire time. Many people say after the numbing process—which feels like a bee sting—they felt only a slight pressure during the procedure (if they felt anything at all). Dr. Weiss then uses gentle ultrasonic energy designed to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue. Because the incision is so small (similar to that of a cortisone shot) and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed.
When the procedure is completed, Dr. Weiss applies a small adhesive bandage; no stitches are required.
Recovery is rapid with many people being back to normal life in approximately 6 weeks.
