Relieving Pain and Restoring Function to Get You Back in the Swing of Things
Surgical And Nonsurgical Elbow Treatments
Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow
Despite the name of these conditions, any activity that requires repetitive use of the elbow can cause tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. Elbow treatments initially involve rest and ice to control the pain followed by a stretching and strengthening program.
Biceps Tendon Tears
For distal biceps tendon tears, or biceps tears at the elbow, Dr. Goradia uses specialized techniques. This allows some patients to begin range of motion exercises as soon as 1 week after surgery.
Triceps Tendon Tears
Dr. Goradia will begin by diagnosing the type and extent of the tricep tendon tear. Your personalized treatment plan may involve nonsurgical treatment for partial tears and surgery for complete tears.
