There is a new treatment for chronic lateral epicondylitis also known as tennis elbow by a company called Tenex Health. They have designed a high frequency ultrasound probe that removes worn out or degenerative tendon and helps to facilitate the healing process. This a potential alternative to open elbow surgery and can accomplish the same results with a less invasive procedure and many times with a shorter recover period.
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 6-8 weeks or so versus the open surgical procedure which is usually three months or more
If you suffer from chronic tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, Achilles or patellar tendinitis come in for a consultation to find out more about this exciting new procedure being offered by Dr. Jerry Sobel at Sobel Spine and Sports in Phoenix AZ.
