Tenex is a minimally invasive procedure specially designed for those who are suffering from pain associated with tendon damage, such as pain in the rotator cuff, tennis or golfer’s elbow, runner’s or jumper’s knee, Achilles tendonitis, or plantar fasciitis.

This procedure can be done in an office setting or in an outpatient surgical center. It takes about 20-30 minutes and the recovery time is much shorter on the order of 6 weeks or so versus the open surgical procedure which is usually three months.
