Tenex Health's minimally invasive technology eliminates chronic tendon pain by precisely targeting and removing damaged tissue, without the need for major surgery.
Developed in collaboration with the world-renown MAYO Clinic, Tenex Health technology has been shown to improve overall functionality and significantly decrease pain in the treatment of tendonitis in the elbow, hip, knee, ankle, and plantar fasciitis pain in the foot.
What To Expect
Your doctor will use ultrasound imaging (the same non-invasive technology used to see babies in the womb) to visualize and identify the specific location of the damaged tendon.
Your doctor will then numb the area with a local anesthetic, gently applying Tenex Health’s ultrasonic tool to safely breakdown and remove the damaged tissue.
As the required incision is minimally-invasive and the ultrasonic energy precisely treats only the damaged tendon tissue, the surrounding healthy tissue is left unharmed.
Stitches are not required, so your doctor will only apply a small, adhesive bandage after the procedure.
You will be able to go home immediately after the procedure is completed.
Clinical studies have shown that patient recovery times are 6-8 weeks when Tenex Health technology is used1,5 for treating chronic tendon pain, compared to the 7-8 months for recovery after conventional surgery10.
Clean facilities, responsive staff, and a knowledgeable Doctor who all put you or your issues first. what medicine is supposed to be.

I have been receiving stem cell and prp injections from Dr Leiber since 2016 for various old sports injuries. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Expert and professional. Regenexx has kept me out of the joint replacement crowd for 10 years. The best investment I have ever made is with Dr. James Leiber.
I had PRP for a tear in a tendon in my shoulder on 2/15/21....followed by 10 weeks of PT. Today 5/4/21 I am 98% pain free! Only discomfort is when I lay on my shoulder too long while sleeping! I am so grateful for Dr Leiber & his practice for this amazing procedure!
It is hard to believe how good this works. At first you wonder and are skeptical. But, being able to use my shoulder full circle is the best feeling in the world! Thanks Dr. Ron Torrance, I am so happy to be active again!!!!
Great experience from the start Dr. Torrance and the staff reviewed every step of the procedure and followed up several times. Its been six months since my procedure and the results have been amazing! I would highly recommend to explore the Regenexx process before knee replacement, its worth the research!
The whole group was very helpful and friendly. Explained things thoroughly. They obviously know their stuff! Felt very confident scheduling a date for procedure.
My shoulder was in rough shape. It felt fine as long as I did not do anything with it. Once I had the procedure done and then completed the rehab, my shoulder is really healthy now. It is up to about 95% strength now. I can lift bags of concrete. I can do push ups too. Not a bunch of them, but I couldn't even do 2 before.
