Lateral epicondylitis is a common overuse injury to the elbow. In order to treat the pain, I recommend you start with rice, follow with stretching/ strengthening (therapy), consider couterforce bracing. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone/prp injections. Some people end up needing surgery. An ortho physician will be able to help

My fiancée needs surgery for tennis elbow and she would like to know which surgery is better to have open or arthroscopic for this surgery?
Percutaneous: I'm partial to a newer procedure called a percutaneous tenotomy. Tiny incision and uses ultrasound to guide a pen-like micro tip to the area of tendon damage. This device then removes the damaged portion of the tendon. I've had great success with this procedure. There is a physician in st. Louis who has done several hundred of these. We try to be unbiased, but go to tenexhealth. Com. ...Read more
I had a specific injury that caused my tennis elbow. I had multiple cortisone & blood injections & surgery 4 mos. Ago-still have pain-any other tx?
Difficult: First, I would probably recommend a second opinion to confirm that tennis elbow is your actual diagnosis. Many doctors jump straight to injections and surgery prior to emphasizing stretching and therapy. I would definitely do these if they haven't been done. Unfortunately, there is a subset of patients who just don't respond to surgery the way that we would hope. ...Read more
Tennis elbow confirmed after examination. No scans. 4 cortisone injections in two years. Last two made pain worst. Suggested surgery. What should I do?
Surgery should be: The very last thing tried. Make sure your physical medicine doctor has put you on a full course of progressive eccentric exercise. Nitrous oxide patches applied directly over the affected common extensor and changed every 24 hours can be a very helpful adjunct to physical therapy. If this fails (and it works most of the time) consider ultrasound guided needle tenotomy of affected areas. ...Read more

I have had tennis elbow for over a year and had multiple treatments for it including cortisone shots, tens. And ultrasonic. My doctor said surgery.? .
May be true: Tennis elbow symptoms usually resolve in a year. If treatment doesn't include stretching and strengthening programs, symptoms often recur.
