What is TenJet?
TenJet is a needle-like device specifically designed to treat tendinosis or chronic tendinitis and provide relief from chronic tendon pain. The device uses a pressurized, high-velocity jet of saline to selectively resect and remove diseased tendon tissue while sparing healthy tissue.
TenJet enables sports medicine physicians to treat patients suffering from chronic tendon pain due to Tennis Elbow or Golfers’ Elbow, Jumper’s knee, Achilles tendinosis, or tendon calcifications in the shoulder, elbow, hamstring, or hip. It can also be used to treat plantar fasciitis.
The minimally invasive tendon treatment requires only a small incision, is performed in an outpatient setting using real-time ultrasound imaging to visualize the diseased tissue, and aims to accomplish the goal of diseased tissue resection similar to open or arthroscopic surgery.
