Tendon Pain Treatment: Tenex Health TX

More than 10 million Americans every year suffer severe pain due to tendon scar tissue, limiting their range of motion and ability to live an active life. That's why Dr. Simons and the Saint Joseph Sports Medicine Institute are now offering patients access to Tenex Health TX™, a new technology designed to remove the source of tendon pain safely and quickly.

What is Tenex Health TX?

Tenex Haelth TX is a minimally invasive treatment option that uses ultrasound imaging to first identify damaged tissue (the source of pain). The damaged tissue is then broken down and removed with an advanced TX MicroTip ™. Watch how it's done by viewing the animation to the right. 

This usually takes 15 minutes or less, requires only an adhesive bandage to close the micro-incision and offers patients a quick recovery. Dr. Simons is one of the first doctors in the country trained to perform this procedure.
