TENEX

What is the Tenex Procedure?

The Tenex procedure is a trademarked, non-surgical procedure that helps patients who are suffering from chronic tendon pain by nonsurgically removing damaged scar tissue on the tendons. Learn more about it here.

Sometimes, we'll treat chronic (long term) sports injuries with biologic injections. To learn more about these types of treatments visit our injections for sports injuries page .
