Tenotomy or fasciotomy involves needle fenestration of a tendon, fascia, or other tissue, similar to acupuncture, which encourages your body to stimulate healing. A radiologist will use a small needle to gently treat the torn or inflamed area with the help of image-guided technology. This procedure is used to treat chronic tendon inflammation, local tendon tears, ligament tears, or fascia inflammation.
This procedure can be combined with platelet-rich plasma injections to further strengthen and accelerate healing.
This procedure is covered under your Alberta Health Care Plan. It is not currently offered at our Saskatchewan clinic. If you have the procedure with PRP or prolotherapy, there will be an added cost.
