Tenex Health TX™Tinton Falls, NJ
If you suffer from chronic pain associated with tendinopathy, you may be a candidate for the Tenex procedure. If you’ve tried rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, or cortisone injections without success, Tenex Health TX has an 80-90% success rate at relieving your pain which is similar to open surgery.
Tenex Health TX™ is revolutionizing the treatment of tendinopathy and soft tissue injuries. This procedure 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.

Because Tenex Health TX™ is non-surgical and minimally invasive most people can return to their normal daily activities within 6 weeks.
HOW IS THE TENEX HEALTH TX™ PERFORMED?
Tenex Health TX™ is an alternative to surgery. It is performed in the comfort of our office under local anesthesia. The procedure uses the TX1™ or TX2™ Tissue Removal System by Tenex Health.
Using ultrasound guidance to target the exact source of the pain, Dr. Savarino creates a small incision and inserts the toothpick-sized tip of the TX1 or TX2 Tissue Removal System into the affected area. The tip emits ultrasonic energy, which breaks down damaged, painful scar tissue without disturbing the surrounding healthy tendon tissue.
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.
