If your symptoms do not respond after 6 to 12 months of nonsurgical treatments, Dr. Durand may recommend surgery.
Most surgical procedures for tennis elbow involve removing diseased muscle and reattaching healthy muscle back to bone.
The right surgical approach for you will depend on a range of factors. These include the scope of your injury, your general health, and your personal needs. Talk with Dr. Durand about the options, discuss the results and any risks associated with this procedure.
Surgery for tennis elbow removes the damaged tendon to ease pain and help you move your elbow more easily. The surgery can be done in one of two ways: by open surgery or arthroscopy.
You can be awake or asleep during the procedure, depending on the specifics of your case. Either way, you’ll get medicine so you don’t feel pain.
Dr. Durand makes a cut above the bone on the side of your elbow. Then he removes the damaged piece of tendon and reattaches the healthy part back to the bone. Dr. Durand might also remove a tiny piece of bone in your elbow to improve blood flow and help the area heal faster.
During this procedure, Dr. Durand makes a few tiny cuts in the skin over your elbow. Very small instruments and a camera go into the holes. He removes the damaged parts of your tendon.
With either type of surgery, the opening is closed with sutures (a row of stitches) or staples. Then it’s covered with a bandage or other dressing. You should be able to go home on the same day as your surgery.
