Do you have pain in your shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle or foot that has lasted for more than three months? Tendonitis is a short-term inflammation of a tendon that causes pain, however chronic tendon disease is a persistent condition caused by degeneration of tendon tissue that generally requires intervention. If you’ve tried Physical Therapy, injections, ice, rest and conservative therapies with no relief, Tenex Health Tx™ may be right for you. Tenex Health Tx™ is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that requires no stitches or additional treatments. Using ultrasound imaging technology to identify the diseased tissue, a microincision is made and the TX MicroTip inserted to precisely cut and remove the diseased tissue without damaging healthy tissue. Recovery is usually a few weeks as opposed to months with traditional surgery. Dr. Jonathan Nzoma at Spine Specialists of Michigan is using this treatment to get you back to a pain free life and the activities you enjoy!
