Pain Management

Featuring the most innovative minimally-invasive pain relief procedures for

Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia is the soft tissue that connects the toes and the heel of the foot. When strained or over-worked, it can cause plantar fasciitis. Symptoms include heel pain and/or flat feet. Left untreated it can also lead to other issues including hip pain, back pain, leg pain, and heel spurs.

  • One in ten people will suffer from plantar fasciitis
  • 20% of patients will not get relief from conservative therapy, such as physical therapy, orthotics, steroid injections, etc.
  • Advanced Vein & Interventional offers a new minimally invasive 20 minute cure!

Tenex Health TX technology combines sophisticated ultrasound imaging to pinpoint damaged tendon tissue along with the advanced TX MicroTip. The TX MicroTip precisely breaks down and extracts the damaged tissue that causes tendon pain, leaving healthy tissues unharmed. When the damaged tissue is removed and there is increased blood flow, the body stimulates a healing response. This allows patients to return more quickly to their normal daily routine than with a traditional open surgery. Precision image-guided ultrasonic energy.

Tenex achieves similar outcomes to open surgery, but is minimally invasive and can be performed under local anesthesia in a nonsurgical setting.  Patients enjoy less discomfort and quicker recovery times versus traditional surgical procedures. A boot will be required for two to four weeks after the procedure with most patients returning to normal activities within four to eight weeks.

If conservative therapy hasn’t worked, patients should ask their provider to schedule a consultation with an Interventional Radiologists before considering traditional open surgery. Advanced Vein & Interventional physicians use imaging to both locate the cause of the pain and perform minimally invasive treatment. In many cases, patients can find relief without the long recovery times of traditional surgery. Therapies available include:

  • Kyphoplasty
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Selective Nerve Root Block
  • Steroid Injection
  • Sacroplasty
  • Hip Injection
  • Shoulder Injection

Chronic Tendon Pain

Advanced Vein & Interventional physicians are experts at one of the most efficient and innovative treatments of tendon disease. Tenex Health TX is ground breaking, minimally invasive procedure developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic as a one-time treatment for pain. Unlike other treatment options such as ice, injections or medication, this procedure stimulates healing by removing the scar tissue that causes pain, rather than just masking symptoms. Using ultrasonic energy, diseased tissue is precisely removed without damaging healthy tissue.

  • Relieves pain at the source
  • Doesn’t require stitches
  • 1/4 the recovery time compared to surgery
  • Covered by most insurance
  • More than 85% of patients are pain free within weeks of treatment

Tendon pain may feel like burning, cutting, or stabbing in the joints. If pain is relatively new, tendon pain is generally referred to as tendonitis. After being treated conservatively for three months or more, tendon pain is actually considered to be Chronic Tendon Disease. It is caused by repetitive motions creating micro tears that require a higher level of intervention. Tendonitis is a short-term inflammation of a tendon that causes pain, while Chronic Tendon Disease is a persistent condition characterized by degeneration of tendon tissue without inflammation.

After the procedure, patients can simply go home. They may even drive themselves with physician approval. Unlike open surgery, there are no stitches or general anesthesia needed. Best of all, the pain relief can be nearly instant and there is minimal downtime.
