Choosing the best doctor for Tennis Elbow in New York and Brooklyn

Tennis Elbow

Choosing the best doctor for Tennis Elbow in New York and Brooklyn is a significant decision. Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis) can be a difficult and chronic problem that impacts active individuals. Dr. Cagle has extensive experience treating Tennis Elbow, and he utilizes the most cutting edge minimally invasive techniques and technologies for treatment.

WHAT IS TENNIS ELBOW (LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS)?

Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis) represents a spectrum of injuries to the tendons that attach on the outside of the elbow. The tendon can be inflamed for even partially torn.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE TENNIS ELBOW (LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS)?

Tennis Elbow typically presents with pain over the outside of the elbow. The pain may occur with use of the elbow, wrist or hand.

HOW IS TENNIS ELBOW (LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS) DIAGNOSED?

Tennis Elbow is diagnosed by a combination of history, symptoms, a physical examination and sometimes an MRI.

HOW IS TENNIS ELBOW (LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS) TREATED?

Tennis Elbow is typically treated without surgery. Early treatment includes bracing, anti-inflammatory medications, anti-inflammatory injections and physical therapy. In addition, PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections may be utilized.

HOW IS THE SURGERY PERFORMED?

Although surgery is rarely needed, a small percentage of people with Tennis Elbow undergo a repair of the tendon. This is performed through a small minimally invasive approach to limit pain and scaring.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER?

Recovery after a Tennis Elbow repair occurs in stages. Dr. Cagle personalizes the time program to each situation. A sling may be needed for 1-3 weeks, and then typically a progressive course of physical therapy is completed.
