TenJet enables a minimally invasive intervention designed to target and treat the source of your chronic tendon pain. This proven and effective technology utilizes a needle-like device to deliver a controlled, supersonic stream of water that removes diseased tendon while sparing healthy tissue. Just as a power washer removes the dirt from your car without affecting the shiny finish, TenJet is specifically engineered to remove scar tissue without harming healthy tendon. Performed under a local anesthetic in approximately fifteen minutes, the TenJet procedure treats the source of your tendon pain, allowing you to quickly return to daily activities.

A quick and effective intervention, TenJet utilizes a controlled, high pressure stream of saline to remove diseased tendon while sparing healthy tissue.
