Avoid Elbow Surgery. Consider the Regenerative Alternative.
Why Surgery Should Always Be Your Last Treatment Option.
Elbow pain is commonly associated with overuse (tennis or golfer’s elbow), or osteoarthritis due to aging and the degenerative process.
Unfortunately, surgery is commonly presented as the only option to patients by their doctors, even when studies have shown that many of these surgeries produce no benefit, or are minimally effective for treating the condition. Oftentimes, physical therapy alone produces equal outcomes when compared to common surgeries.
While there are times when surgery is certainly required, regenerative treatments are quickly becoming the preferred surgical alternative for conditions ranging from tendon and ligament tears, arthritis, meniscus tears, damaged cartilage, knee instability, patellar pain, overuse injuries and many other conditions that cause joint pain.
Regenerative treatment patients avoid the long list of surgical risks, which are often not experienced until well after the surgery. Besides the risks associated with the surgery, patients deal with painful and lengthy recovery periods to try and regain strength and range of motion. And depending on the type of surgery, patients are likely to experience an earlier onset of arthritis, due to the surgical removal of tissue that typically stabilizes or cushions the joint (such as knee meniscus surgery, which removes portions of the meniscus).
With regenerative treatments, patients benefit from minimal downtime and are encouraged to return to activity. We have seen plenty of regenerative patients experience a full recovery and become pain-free, even when surgery or joint replacement was originally recommended for their condition. Regenerative treatments are typically excellent options for elbow pain
