Spine Specialists of Michigan is now utilizing Tenex Health’s minimally invasive technology to eliminate chronic tendon pain by precisely targeting and removing damaged tissue, without the need for conventional surgery.

Chronic Tendon disease is a persistent condition caused by degeneration of tendon tissue without inflammation. It is caused by repetitive motions creating micro tears, or tiny breaks that require a higher level of intervention than the short-term inflammation of tendonitis.

If you have had tendon pain for more than three months and conservative therapies have failed, Tenex Health’s procedure may be right for you. Using ultrasound imaging technology, 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 cut 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.
