Tenex Health TX® provides PAIN RELIEF

Treating Chronic Tendon Pain Without Surgery

At Rainier Orthopedic Institute, your well-being is our highest priority. In the interest of providing our patients with the most advanced care available, we are now offering an exciting new outpatient procedure specially designed for those who are suffering from pain associated with tendon damage.

Tenex Health TX® is based on advanced technology developed in collaboration with the world renowned Mayo Clinic. Tenex Health TX combines ultrasound imaging to specifically target damaged tissue with the advanced TX MicroTip, which precisely breaks down and removes only the damaged tissue that causes pain. This procedure is not open surgery and can be performed in an outpatient procedure room.


Tendon pain takes many forms:

  • Tennis / Golfer’s Elbow (lateral epicondylitis and medial epicondylitis)

  • Hip tendinosis

  • Patellar tendinosis (Jumper’s Knee)

  • Achilles tendinosis

  • Plantar fasciitis


Are you a “silent sufferer”?

If you are like many individuals, you have probably tried many things to get back to feeling “good” or even “better”. Physical therapy, cortisone injections, medication, or just taking time to rest. All may provide temporary relief, but then your pain comes back. The thought of undergoing surgery is not appealing due to the fact that it can be expensive, there are potential risks and side effects, and a long recovery period does not fit into your schedule. Now you now have a better option – we can help!

Tenex Health TX benefits:

  • Rapid pain relief

  • Recovery of 6-8 weeks to return to normal activities

  • Performed typically with local anesthetic

  • No sutures, no stitches (requires only a small, adhesive bandage)

  • Minimally invasive, not open surgery

  • Covered by most insurances
