Well I am seeing the same surgeon now for the third year in a row. A left frozen shoulder, a right frozen shoulder...and now this:
From the Hand University Website:
Sometimes conservative treatment fails to stop the pain or help patients regain use of the elbow. In these cases, surgery may be necessary.
When problems are caused by tendinosis, doctors may choose to take out only the affected tissues within the tendon. In these cases, the surgeon cleans up the tendon, removing only the damaged tissue.A commonly used surgery for tennis elbow is called a lateral epicondyle release. This surgery takes tension off the extensor tendon.
So this is the blog for a bit...I may have my arm in a sling and may not be on a computer for a while...
