Lateral Epicondylitis

Commonly referred to as Tennis Elbow, Lateral Epicondylitis occurs when the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow are overused. Elbow pain resulting from the repetitive motion of the elbow generally first appears in athletes as a pain in the outer elbow. Bending the elbow will generally be painful as well. Tennis Elbow has been known to react well to non-surgical treatments, but in the event of a complete rupture, Dr. Nadel will need to perform Arthroscopic Surgery to repair the tendons, and remove the damaged or inflamed tissue which is causing the elbow pain and irritation.
