Tenex minimally invasive technology for the treatment of chronic tendon pain
At Frankel Foot & Ankle we are using an exciting new minimally invasive procedure to effectively eliminate pain from Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis (heel pain).
Designed to treat chronic tendon pain, Tenex provides our patients with a rapid and precise option for removing chronic tendon pain without open surgery or lengthy and tedious treatment plans.
Multiple studies document the proven effectiveness of Tenex
Tenex Health technology has been shown in multiple clinical studies to improve overall functionality and significantly decrease pain in the treatment of tendonitis in the elbow, hip, knee, ankle, and plantar fasciitis foot pain. Our patients appreciate it for multiple reasons:
- The procedure is minimally invasive and performed using local anesthesia, requiring only a 3mm microincision, which reduces the risk of infection.
- As the required incision is minimally-invasive and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed, allowing patient recovery to be in the 4-6 week range
- No stitches are required.
If you suffer from chronic Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis (heel pain), Tenex may be right for you. Ask Dr. Marc Frankel when you make an appointment.
