Overusing the tendons responsible for moving your elbow, fingers and wrist can lead to pain from the connective tissue breaking down and inflammation. Regardless of whether you are a tennis player or someone who uses their elbows for lifting and moving objects in the warehouse, it isn’t all that difficult to wind up with pain from using your elbows too much. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort from elbow tendinosis, you can schedule your surgery with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.
With all of the tendons in the elbow, you can end up with an intense pain due to overusing the joint. Tendinosis occurs when the tendons end up degenerating because of a microtrauma. Aging, diminished blood flow and overusing the muscles in the elbow can all cause the condition to occur. By the time you notice weakness and pain, the condition has already been settled into your tendon for quite some time. When collagen levels decrease in the elbow, it causes the tendon to become unstable and tear.
Thanks to this minimally invasive elbow surgery, it only takes 20 minutes for the entire procedure to be complete. An incision is made in the elbow to gain access to the tendon and repair the site. All of the diseased muscles are taken out and the healthy ones are attached to the bone once again. Sutures are used to close the site once the tendon has been repaired.
After surgery, your arm will be put into a splint. Roughly, one week later, you will have the splint and sutures removed. Once your splint is off, you will begin exercises to help stretch and restore movement in the joint. Light strengthening exercises begin about two months following the procedure. It usually takes four to six months before you are able to return to any sports activities.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $6,140, versus having to pay $61,400 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.
