Tenex Health TX® Technique (Percutaneous Tenotomy)
Tenex Health TX® is a minimally invasive procedure using ultrasound imaging and patented TX MicroTip® technology to treat chronic tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) that fails to respond to conservative treatment. The procedure, which is also known as Percutaneous Tenotomy, eliminates damaged and degenerated tendon tissue with minimal down time. It serves as an effective alternative to arthroscopic or traditional open surgery.
Tenex Health TX Benefits
- The Tenex Health TX approach provides patients with a rapid and precise option for removing chronic tendon pain without open surgery or lengthy treatment plans.
- The procedure is minimally invasive and performed using a local anesthetic. The TX MicroTip is inserted into a tiny microincision (3mm), which minimizes the risk of infection.
- The microincision closure requires only a small, adhesive bandage. Recovery is rapid, approximately 6-8 weeks to return to normal activity.
- Good clinical and functional results, with minimal risk and post procedure complications, have been reported.
