Tennis Elbow – Minimally invasive micro debridement

Tennis elbow is a common problem for patients who play tennis or not. The #Tenex device offers a minimally invasive solution for patients not improving with typical treatments and those who do not want to wait any longer to return to activity. I combine this with PRP at time of the procedure.

My introductory post

Hello, this is my first attempt at blogging. My goal is to provide interesting(hopefully) and useful information about a variety of sports medicine injuries and orthopaedic conditions. The posts will be short, not overly technical and often have associated images and videos of work I have done or problems I have treated. I encourage anyone reading this to comment and ask questions, through a thoughtful exchange I can better understand what information my readers are looking for and what you get the most out of. These posts are not intended to diagnose, treat or give advice; rather to guide you about the injuries you may have and help you on your journey to recovery.

I have been a sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon for 20 years. I have cared for athletes of all levels, from the professional to the weekend warrior. I enjoy treating people of all ages and I welcome pediatric patients with sports injuries. My goal is to get you back on your field quickly, safely and confidently.
