TenJet Procedure Q & A

What is the TenJet procedure?

The TenJet procedure is a minimally invasive treatment primarily used for chronic tendonitis. 

Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendons that usually occurs from overuse. When left untreated, the ongoing inflammation can damage a tendon, causing it to break down, leading to chronic tendonitis, also called tendinosis. 

The TenJet procedure uses a high-velocity stream of saline fluid that removes the damaged parts of the tendon without touching the healthy tissue. The board-certified physicians at Advanced Spine and Pain Center use the TenJet procedure to help their patients get quick and effective relief from their tendon pain. 

What conditions benefit from the TenJet procedure?

Advanced Spine and Pain Center providers perform the TenJet procedure to treat a number of conditions that cause soft tissue inflammation and pain. They use the minimally invasive procedure to treat:

  • Chronic Achilles tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Knee pain from patellar or quadricep chronic tendonitis
  • Hip pain from gluteus medius tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bursitis
  • Hamstring and iliotibial band (IT) injuries

The pain management clinic also uses TenJet to debride (remove) surgical scar tissue and treat repetitive tendon strain injuries.

What happens during the TenJet procedure?

Your provider at Advanced Spine and Pain Center reviews the details of your TenJet procedure at your consultation, so you know what to expect. They perform the procedure in the outpatient setting, and you’re given anesthesia to remain comfortable throughout the entire treatment. 

Your provider makes a small incision at the site of your injured tissue and inserts the needle-like device. Using real-time imaging, your provider carefully and expertly removes the damaged tissue. 

They send you to the recovery area for monitoring, and then you go home.

What can I expect during recovery from the TenJet procedure?

Recovery following the TenJet procedure varies and depends on your initial diagnosis and treatment plan. To prepare, Advanced Spine and Pain Center explains what you can expect during recovery before your surgery.

You may notice improvements in your pain within two weeks and continued improvements over the next three months. 

Advanced Spine and Pain Center creates a personalized post-procedure treatment plan to support your recovery, which may include physical therapy.
