Culture of Medicine: In reality your question is difficult to answer. I do not know the doctor's you have seen or what they have determined from their evaluation of your problems. But, this situation is not uncommon. There often is no one answer for these situations. A person goes with the recommendation of the doctor they trust most. Or, as in many cases, the decision is made in consultation with your family doc.

Controversy exists: There are differing opinions regarding steroid injections for tennis elbow. I no longer offer an injection for this condition based on recent literature which basically states that in the long term it can cause more damage. There are always research papers that contradict each other so it really comes down to what ur surgeon believes and how up to date they are on research
