Explore TenJet as a quick and effective intervention to get back to an active and pain-free lifestyle.
How does the TenJet work?
TenJet delivers a controlled, high-velocity stream of saline to remove diseased tendons while sparing healthy tissue. The minimally invasive intervention is performed in an outpatient setting using real-time ultrasound imaging to identify the diseased tendon. Stitches may not be needed with TenJet. Distinguished physicians across the United States have used the TenJet device to help thousands of patients find quick and effective symptom resolution.
What causes tendon pain?
Tendon injuries can result from activities that involve repetitive motion, and these injuries can generate micro-tears within the tendon. When a tendon is unable to heal, abnormal tissue can fill the space which may cause pain and limit the range of motion. How does tendon pain affect you? Tendon pain can affect your everyday quality of life, ability to participate in sports, and ability to work. Many patients suffer for years before seeking help beyond painkillers, injections, and other conservative treatments.
Day of the Procedure
Your doctor will cover what to specifically expect in relation to the procedure using TenJet, but there are 3 main steps.
- Identify the location of the damaged tendon using ultrasound guidance and numb the incision site.
- Treat with the high-velocity stream of saline to remove the diseased tendon tissue while sparing healthy tissue.
