Advanced Tendon Needle Fenestration

At Wake Nonsurgical Ortho & Sports Medicine in Raleigh, NC we offer needle fenestration as a non-invasive, non-surgical treatments for tendonitis and related tendon issues to reduce pain and improve healing.

Because tendons have poor blood supply compared to other tissues, when there is an injury, the healing time is much slower. This leads to longer periods of pain and more time away from activities.

Using ultrasound-guided “needling” of the tendon, we can stimulate bleeding in the painful areas. Needle fenestration prompts a natural healing response that will flood the area with platelets to provide intensive, natural healing using your body’s own immune response. Recovery time is decreased and there are minimal side effects aside from a bit of local soreness. This is a steroid-free treatment that we pair with a PRP therapy to provide additional healing response.
