Specialty care for tennis elbow and arm pain
Overuse injuries that cause elbow pain are often from repetitive movements. Our sports medicine doctors and orthopedic surgeons treat overuse injuries such as tendonitis, or tennis elbow. Sports like tennis, golf and baseball involve arm movements that can wear on the tendons in your elbow. The same can happen at work. Jobs such as plumbing, painting, carpentry and mechanics often involve repetitive arm movements. Orthopedic care teams also provide care for many other conditions, including osteoarthritis, bone fractures and arm weakness.
Our doctors offer surgical and non-surgical treatment options, with minimally invasive techniques when possible, including:
- Arthroscopic surgery and joint repair
- Orthopedic surgery to repair bone fractures in the arm
- Medication therapy
- Non-surgical injections
- Rehabilitation and recovery care
- Sports medicine, exercise physiology and sports performance
If you’re looking for a second opinion from an orthopedic doctor, we can connect you to the right orthopedic surgeon. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your second opinion appointment.
