What is a Tennis Elbow

Medically known as lateral epicondylitis, a tennis elbow is an elbow condition that results from overuse of the forearm, wrist, or hand muscles. The overuse injury causes inflammation and microtears of the tendons on the outside of the elbow joint. It can cause localized swelling, warmth, and pain, among other symptoms.

Tennis elbow can be an issue for tennis players, but it also affects people who perform repetitive movements using their arms, elbows, or wrists. Generally, the elbow still maintains its full range of motion as the joint remains unaffected.

Questions About Tennis Elbow Surgery?

Tennis Elbow Treatment

We will first strive to treat your tennis elbow with conservative treatments. This includes limiting activities that affect your arm, splints or braces, medications, pulsed ultrasound, etc. When conservative treatment fails to show successful results, our specialist will recommend surgical treatments.

We generally recommend surgery after 6 to 12 months of persistent symptoms, as it is the last resort. During our tennis elbow surgery in Houston, we remove the dead tissue around your outer elbow in order to improve the blood supply to that area and alleviate the symptoms.

Benefits of Tennis Elbow Surgery

Our surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation of your elbow and proceed with the suitable surgery for you. Here are some benefits you can expect after your tennis elbow surgery with us in Houston:

  1. Pain Relief: We will repair the damaged tendons and address the underlying cause of your pain. This way, the surgery provides significant pain relief!

  3. Long-Term Results: Our experienced orthopedic surgeon will perform a thorough surgery that provides long-lasting results. With proper recovery, you can prevent the recurrence of symptoms.

Patient Reviews

If this surgery is a little frightening, I understand. I interviewed doctors until I was satisfied that the one I chose was right for me. The pain and restriction of movement in my left shoulder was debilitating. Dr. Michael Cusick is totally committed to his trade. Complete total reverse shoulder replacement.

Kyle Powell

Don't get me wrong there was hiccups and waiting to have surgery seemed like forever but Dr. Cusick, his office staff and the hospital staff especially has been amazing. They went above and beyond to get my surgery approved so we wouldn't have to put it off longer. Dr. Cusick keeps a positive outlook even at times...
