How is Tennis Elbow Surgery Performed?
Tennis elbow surgery is performed either by an open surgery method or by an arthroscopic surgery method. Arthroscopic surgery for tennis elbow is comparatively new.
The type of surgical method is determined by factors like the severity of the injury, the patient's general health and other requirements. The doctor will decide which method is appropriate for the patient.

Open Surgery

  • A large incision is made on the elbow over the joint.
  • The damaged tendon is located and identified.
  • The damaged portion of the tendon is cut and removed.
  • The remaining tendon may be repaired by using sutures that are attached to the bone .
  • The incision is closed with sutures and covered with a bandage.
  • A splint is used to support the patient's arm .

Arthroscopic Surgery
  • A tiny incision is made on the elbow over the joint.
  • An arthroscope is inserted into the joint through the incision.
  • This allows the surgeon to view into the elbow joint and examine the cause of the pain.
  • A few other tiny incisions are made through which surgical instruments are inserted.
  • The damaged tendon is removed using the surgical tools, without detaching the tendon from the bone.
  • The incision is closed with sutures and covered with a bandage.
  • A splint is used to support the patient's arm.

How to Prepare for Tennis Elbow Surgery?
