The TenJet device is engineered to target and treat the source of your chronic shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and foot tendon pain.
A quick and effective intervention, TenJet utilizes a controlled, high pressure stream of saline to remove diseased tendon while sparing healthy tissue.
When TenJet is used in a minimally invasive procedure, stitches may not be needed!
Tendinitis vs. Tendinosis
Tendinitis and tendinosis are different types of tendon injury, which require different treatment approaches.
Tendinitis is a short-term inflammation of the tendon, which can resolve itself with rest and physical therapy. In contrast, tendinosis occurs when an overused tendon does not heal resulting in degeneration of the tendon fibers.
Your physician will recommend the type of anesthetic suitable for your procedure. You may feel some discomfort as the anesthetic is being administered and after the anesthetic wears off.
On average, you should experience pain relief within three months of treatment. Individual results may vary, and your physician will guide your post-treatment recovery plan.
When TenJet is used in a minimally invasive procedure, stitches may not be needed.
Most insurance companies provide reimbursement for tenotomy procedures.
