Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair Q & A

Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair Procedure:

Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair is a minimally invasive procedure that removes the painful scar tissue that may occur in chronic cases of plantar fasciitis or tendonitis such as Achilles or posterior tibial tendonitis.

This procedure is performed with a small incision, it doesn’t require stitches and it leaves no scar. It takes less than 10 minutes to perform, and requires no downtime from work.

How is the Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair procedure performed?

The Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair procedure involves the following steps:

  1. A local anesthetic is given to numb the affected area
  2. Ultrasound imaging identifies precisely the location of damaged scar tissue within the tendon
  3. A small incision is made to allow the TX1 Tissue Removal System to go in and break up the damaged scar tissue with the use of high-frequency vibrations, while not affecting the surrounding healthy tissue
  4. The Minimally Invasive Tendon Repair system gently removes the broken up scar tissue and an adhesive bandage is used to close the incision
