Based on technology developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, the Tenex Health TXTM System combines conventional ultrasound imaging for visualization with the advanced TXTM MicroTipTM which utilizes ultrasonic energy to cut and debride damaged tendon tissue.

Understanding Tendon Pain

Did you know that over 10 million people in the United States suffer from tendon injuries every year? These injuries are associated with chronic pain and losing the ability to perform simple daily activities.
Tendon pain is often known as tendonitis or tendinosis.
** Tendonitis An inflammation or irritation of a tendon that can cause pain and tenderness outside of a joint.            ** Tendinosis Also known as chronic tendonitis, is caused by tiny tears in the tendon tissue that can create pain, stiffness, or inflammation around the tendon. Both conditions can occur in any joint in your body, but you will commonly experience it in the upper and lower limbs. Tendon injuries can be very painful and are slow to heal, taking months or even years.

If you suffer from tendon pain or know someone who has, there are different treatment options to help relieve your pain, as well as an innovative procedure designed to eliminate the source of your pain and aid in the healing process of the damaged tendon. In this section, you’ll learn what a tendon is and how it works, the cause of tendon pain, and the treatment options available to you.

What to Expect During Tenex Health TX

Great news! The procedure is performed using local anesthetic to numb the area. You will be fully awake and alert the entire time.

During the procedure, Dr Niccoli will use sophisticated ultrasound imaging to identify the specific location of the damaged tendon tissue. This is similar to seeing a baby in the womb with a sonogram.
Once the treatment area is located, a small MicroTipTM is inserted. The MicroTip delivers ultrasonic energy specifically designed to break down and remove damaged tissue safely and quickly, without disturbing the surrounding healthy tendon tissue. When the procedure is completed, only a small adhesive bandage is used, and no sutures or stitches are needed.

What to Expect After Tenex Health TX

After Tenex Health TX, you will be permitted to go home. If you feel any discomfort, you can take an over-the-counter pain medication.  For at least 2 weeks after Tenex Health TX, you should not perform any weightbearing exercises or activities. Dr. Niccoli will provide specific instructions based on your condition, work, and lifestyle. In most cases, you will not need physical therapy or medications before resuming normal activities.

If this sounds like a treatment plan you would be interested in call our office or make your appointment.
