What happens if Tennis Elbow is left untreated

While pain from Tennis Elbow starts on the outside of the elbow, if the condition is left untreated, the pain can spread down the arm all the way to the wrist.

What are the surgical options for Tennis Elbow

Arthroscopic surgery is a treatment option for Tennis Elbow. A surgeon checks for any other source for the pain to the elbow joint. It also allows for removal of damaged tendon without detachment of the tendon from the bone.

Surgery for tennis elbow may involve cutting (releasing) the tendon, removing inflamed tissue from the tendon and fixing (reattaching) tendon tears if possible. Surgery may be done arthroscopically with a few small incisions, by open surgery through one large incision, or by more than one technique. The type of surgery will depend on the problem and which method the surgeon opts for.

What is the post surgery recovery for Tennis Elbow

Soon after surgery, severe pain will decrease, but the patient may have mild soreness for 3 to 6 months. The first week after surgery, the patient will have a thick bandage or a splint. A patient should begin moving your arm gently, as recommended by your surgeon. After the first week, the bandage, splint, and stitches will be removed.

Begin stretching exercises after the splint is removed since it will increase flexibility and range of motion. The surgeon may also suggest physical therapist to work on stretching and strengthening your forearm muscles. This can begin after 3 to 4 weeks. This helps ensure tennis elbow will not return. You may be prescribed a wrist brace.
