At North Jersey Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute, we believe in using the most conservative treatment possible to treat our patients for tennis elbow. This may include the use of physical therapy, forearm support braces, and modifications to certain motions or activities. In some cases, steroid joint injections may be used to help reduce inflammation and pain. However, some patients do not experience successful results using conservative methods and instead require surgical treatment.
Tennis Elbow surgery requires a small incision into the lateral portion of the elbow, where the tendon is detached and damaged tissues are removed. The bone is then shaved down and the tendon reattached.
