When your body is injured, it naturally begins the work of healing itself, deploying proteins called “growth factors” that stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells and tissues to replace those that have been damaged. Orthobiologics is an exciting new field of orthopedic medicine that seeks to harness these natural healing abilities to accelerate the recovery of damaged tissue and cartilage following serious orthopedic injuries without surgery, allowing patients to restore their bodies with less pain, downtime, and cost.
Dr Vonda Wright, MD, MS, FAOA is a double-board certified orthopedic sports medicine doctor who is experienced in utilizing orthobiologic treatment techniques, including orthobiologic injections and TenJet rehabilitation. Dr. Wright takes a comprehensive approach to musculoskeletal wellness that harnesses innovative regenerative techniques, and she is passionate about staying on the forefront of biotech to help her patients achieve the best outcomes possible.

TenJet is one of the most effective pieces of technology available in sports medicine, and Dr. Wright frequently uses it for treating chronic pain in the tendons that can occur as the result of conditions such as:
The TenJet device applies a tiny needle into the affected tendon, allowing pressurized saline to reach any damaged tissue that needs removal. Using ultrasound imaging, Dr. Wright can non-surgically view the tendon and use the tool to debride (remove) the problematic tissue, leaving healthy tissue in place.
TenJet is extremely valuable in the fact that it is minimally invasive, non surgical, and performed in an outpatient procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Wright is highly experienced in performing TenJet procedures, and she will work closely with you and guide you in the rehabilitative protocols necessary to restore your body to full function prior to your treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), an orthobiologic treatment, is the concentrated product of an individual’s own platelets, which come from the plasma portion of whole blood. Platelets are well-known for their role in helping blood clot, but it’s important to note that they are also rich in growth factors and other enzymes, which are involved in the healing process. When injected into an injured tendon, PRP seems to work by providing the tendon with growth factors, which stimulate healing.

Prior to the development of TenJet, Tenex was a technology utilized in a similar procedure. Instead of a saline jet, however, Tenex employed suction to debride diseased tissue. The saline jet used in the TenJet procedure is considered to be an improvement, and has yielded superior results.
While there may be some mild discomfort at the beginning of both of these procedures, local anaesthetics will be utilized to ensure that they are not painful.
