Tennis elbow is an extremely painful condition caused by overuse of your elbow. Playing any type of racquet sports is one of the most common factors in causing the condition to develop. However, there are a number of other activities and sports that can leave you open to this type of injury as well. If tennis elbow is preventing you from playing the sport you love or moving around comfortably, schedule your surgery with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.
Tennis elbow occurs because of the tendons joining the elbow and forearm becoming inflamed. These muscles and tendons can all become damaged from using them too much, such as when you repeat the same movements time and time again. In doing so, you will end up with tenderness and pain along the outside part of your elbow. Individuals between 30 and 50 tend to be the ones most prone to the condition, although it can strike anyone at any time.
Most surgeries for the condition involve getting rid of the diseased muscle and getting the healthy muscles reattached to the bone. An incision is made over your elbow to help locate the diseased tendon and get rid of it. Once the tendon is taken care of, the healthy tendon will be reattached to the humerus. Sutures are used to close the incision.
A splint is often used to keep the arm immobile after the procedure. Sutures and the splint are removed about one week after the surgery. Once the splint is removed, you will begin exercises to help restore movement and stretch your elbow. Light strengthening exercises normally begin about two months after going through the surgery. Expect to wait four to six months before being able to play sports again.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $5,090, versus having to pay $50,900 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
