Treating chronic muscle and tendon pain with the TenJet procedure
Treat Chronic Tendon Pain by Targeting the Source!
The TenJet® system is a device which allows the surgeon to perform a minimally invasive procedure to target the source of chronic tendon pain – the damaged and diseased tendon. This technology uses a special two channel needle engineered to deliver a controlled supersonic stream of saline (sterile water) to break up and remove the damaged tissue while leaving the healthy tissue behind.
It’s basically like power washing the tendon!
The TenJet system is a percutaneous treatment, meaning that it’s performed through a nearly imperceptible incision in the skin and is performed in an outpatient setting in the SurgCenter of Bel Air using only local anesthesia with conscious sedation. The treatment only takes a few minutes and it provides many of the benefits of traditional open or arthroscopic debridement but with a faster recovery.
