TenJet for Chronic Tendon Pain
If you suffer from chronic tendon pain associated with tendinopathy, you may be a candidate for the Tenjet procedure. If you’ve tried rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, or cortisone injections without success, TenJet has a tremendous success rate at relieving your pain!
TenJet™ is reinventing the treatment protocol for tendinopathy and soft tissue injuries. The TenJet device utilizes Fasciotomy and Surgical Tenotomy and is a minimally invasive, non-surgical approach for eliminating scar tissue, which is the source of chronic tendon pain.
A key feature and advantage of the system is its ability to differentiate between tissue types and densities. By adjusting the pressure and parameters of the handpiece nozzle, the device can selectively cut tissue without disturbing the surrounding healthy tissue or vital structures.
Unlike laser or radiofrequency technologies, HydroCision devices deliver a nonthermal stream of saline, which eliminates the risk of thermal damage to surrounding tissue.
Here is a video that shows how TenJet works to create non-surgical relief for those suffering from Tendon damage:
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN TENJET™ HELP?
TenJet™ can treat chronic tendinopathy in the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Some of the most common types of tendinopathy treated by TenJet™ include:
- Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
- Shoulder Bursitis/Calcific Bursitis
- Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
- Hip and Gluteal Tendinopathy/Bursitis
- Quadriceps Tendinopathy
- Patellar Tendinopathy (Jumper’s knee)
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Plantar Fasciitis
Because TenJet™ is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure most people can return to their normal daily activities within a few days or a few short weeks.
HOW IS THE TENJET™ PERFORMED?
TenJet uses a proprietary method of delivering a miniaturized, high-velocity stream of sterile saline to a surgical site while simultaneously enabling a Venturi suction effect to cut and remove tissue of various densities in a minimally invasive manner.
The system’s two main components include a power console and a single-use handpiece. The power console transmits water energy at adjustable settings in the form of controlled, pressurized sterile saline that travels through a high-pressure tubing set into a single-use handpiece. At the distal end of the handpiece, the saline is delivered across a small window as a fine, high-velocity jet stream. The velocity of the saline creates its own Venturi suction, effectively pulling targeted tissue into the cutting window where the jet and suction act simultaneously to cut and remove it. The debrided tissue and waste saline then travel through a second evacuation tube to a waste container.
The treatment only takes about 15 minutes to perform, and no stitches are required. By removing the unhealthy scar tissue, new, healthy tissue can grow, restoring your natural tendon function.
