Tenex Procedure

A Minimally Invasive Treatment
for Chronic Tendon and Plantar Fascia Pain

About the Tenex Procedure

Tenex Health TX is ground breaking technology available to treat tendon disease. Unlike other treatment options such as ice, injections or medication, this procedure stimulates healing by removing the scar tissue that causes pain, rather than just masking the symptoms.


TENEX HEALTH TX is a minimally invasive, one-time treatment for chronic tendon pain. Tenex Health TX is clinically proven to remove tendon pain for >85% of patients.


Medically known as Percutaneous Tenotomy or Percutaneous Fasciotomy, the procedure using Tenex Health TX technology combines sophisticated ultrasound imaging to pinpoint damaged tendon tissue along with the advanced TX MicroTip, which precisely breaks down and extracts the damaged tissue that causes tendon pain. When the damaged tissue is removed and there is increased blood flow, the body stimulates a healing response.
