Tenex FAST Tenotomy Procedure

Written by Dr. Brian Shiple, D.O. on February 24, 2015

Dr. Shiple is an early adopter of the Tenex FAST Tenotomy procedure. This tool uses cutting edge technology to permanently remove small bone spurs and calcification in superficial tendons like the rotator cuff or achilles tendon very efficiently with a "ultrasonic needle system". It also can remove abnormal scar tissue and help debride and heal thickened tendons and plantar fascia conditions. It's covered by most insurance companies. Dr. Shiple has performed over 100 procedures thus far and has confidence in it's ability to help his patients with specific tendon problems when indicated.
