Tenex Procedure for Plantar Fasciitis, Dr Brandon Nelson a Board Certified Physician and Surgeon

heel pain in the morning

Despite all the available conservative options available for plantar fasciitis some patients do still require surgery. There are many different surgical procedures to address chronic plantar fasciitis. This includes the traditional open fasciotomy, the endoscopic fasciotomy, Topaz procedure and the Tenex procedure. The Tenex procedure is relatively new and has showed promising results with minimally invasive technology.

Tenex, is basically a small tool that you insert in the fascia that removes tiny pieces of the fascia. It is inserted multiple times via a very small incision and safely removes some of the diseased fascia and stimulates new fascial growth. The procedure itself can be done in less than 10 minutes and does not require anesthesia. A little bit of numbing medication can be injected around the fascia and then the procedure can be performed. Patients are required to wear a walking boot for about 3 weeks.

The initial results are very promising, and patients experience no pain after the procedure. I have seen very little swelling or bruising after the procedure and patients have been extremely satisfied with the recovery course and reduction of plantar fascial pain. I believe this procedure will change the open approach for a lot of surgeons and is demonstrating incredible results. If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis we can help.
