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.
