Chronic tendon pain is pain you have had for more than three months and conservative therapies haven’t provided relief. It’s a persistent condition characterized by degeneration of tendon issue cause by repetitive motions creating micro tears, or tiny breaks that require intervention. There are now minimally invasive options with much faster healing times.
Tenex Health TX uses ultrasound imaging technology for treatment of tendon pain in the shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles, and feet. The specific location of the diseased tissue is identified and a microincision is made to insert the TX MicroTip. The TX MicroTip uses ultrasonic energy to precisely and remove only the diseased tissue, without damaging healthy tissue. Only local anesthesia is used and no stitches are required. Patients are able to go home soon after the procedure and healing is usually within 6-8 weeks or less as compared to an average of 6 months with conventional surgery.
Regeneten Bioinductive Implant is a new solution for treatment of rotator cuff disease. It helps heal rotator cuff tears and supports the body’s natural healing response to facilitate new tissue growth and potentially disrupt disease progression. The collagen based bioinductive implant is delivered arthroscopically through a small incision over the location of the rotator cuff tendon injury. It is secured in place with small anchors, which completely absorb along with the implant in about six months.
