The Tenex Fast procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic tendon pain. It can be used to treat
Our surgeons use ultrasound technology to identify the specific location of damaged tissue. The area will then be numbed, using local anesthetic. This allows the patient to remain awake throughout the entire procedure. Our surgeons then breakdown and remove only the damaged tissue using gentle ultrasonic energy. Patients might feel a little pressure or may feel nothing at all. The incision is quite small and only requires a band-aid - no stitches. Most people are able to drive home after the procedure. Most report immediate pain relief and have a quick recovery. The speed of your recovery will depend on your diagnosis and individual results can vary.

These arthroscopic techniques are also used to repair injuries that athletes sustain, quickly getting them back in action.
