Introducing Tenex Health TX Procedure for Heel Pain
There is now a new and exciting way for those who suffer from chronic heel pain. In the past, for those sufferers of heel pain that did not respond to conservative methods of treatment, there is now an alternative to open surgery. Tenex Health TX, in conjunction with the Mayo clinic, has developed a new advanced treatment that quickly and safely removes the source of the pain. This is a minimally invasive treatment performed in a same day surgical setting where ultrasound guidance is used to identify the location of chronically damaged tissue. Once located, a small Microtiop is inserted into the area of damage through a small incision. Ultrasonic energy then breaks down and removes damaged tissue quickly and safely, sparing surrounding healthy tissue. The entire procedure takes approximately 20 minutes. Recovery is rapid and the patient is able to walk immediately. Relief of the symptoms normally takes about 6 weeks.
