Cutting edge treatment for tendon injuries and plantar fasciitis
Tenex Health TX is a minimally invasive procedure specially designed for those who are suffering from pain associated with tendon damage. This type of pain includes tennis or golfer’s elbow, Achilles tendonitis, certain rotator cuff and patellar tendon disorders, and plantar fasciitis. The Tenex Health TX procedure uses ultrasound imaging to view and remove damaged tissue. Removing the damaged tissue allows the tendon to heal properly and relieve pain. In surgical terms, this is a percutaneous tenotomy. Dr. Swift is one of a only a few providers in the northwest (and the only provider in Central Oregon) currently performing the Tenex Health TX procedure.
Based on technology developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, the Tenex Health TX has been used to treat over 15,000 patients safely and successfully.
