Golfer's Elbow Release

Golfer’s elbow often results due to repetitive and overuse of muscles responsible for gripping, lifting, and flexing the wrist. The muscles responsible get inflamed or develop microtears around the inner side of the elbow where they are attached to a bony prominence called medial epicondyle.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

During the golfer’s elbow release surgery, the surgeon makes an incision over the affected area, exposing the medial epicondyle and the affected tendons. The surgeon then carefully removes the damaged or diseased part of the tendon and may also perform other procedures to alleviate tension and reduce inflammation. The primary goal of the surgery is to release the pressure and tension on the affected tendons to promote healing and reduce pain. The procedure is usually performed under local or regional anesthesia, depending on the patient’s condition and the surgeon’s preference. Golfer’s elbow release is typically an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient can go home on the same day as the surgery.

What to expect after your surgery:

After the surgery, the patient may need to wear a splint or brace to protect the surgical site and promote healing. Physical therapy and exercises are often prescribed during the recovery phase to regain strength and flexibility in the elbow.

Will I be able to return to sports or physical activities after the surgery?2023-07-21T13:25:42+01:00

The ability to return to sports or physical activities depends on the individual and the type of activities involved. Your surgeon will provide specific guidelines for returning to activities, and it’s essential to follow them to avoid re-injury.

What are the potential risks of Golfer’s elbow release surgery?2023-07-21T13:28:44+01:00

Like any surgical procedure, Golfer’s elbow release surgery carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, nerve or blood vessel damage, and scarring. However, these complications are relatively rare.

Will the surgery completely cure my Golfer’s elbow?2023-07-21T13:30:23+01:00

Golfer’s elbow release surgery aims to relieve pain and improve function in the affected elbow. While it can be highly effective, there is no guarantee that the condition will not recur in the future. Proper post-operative care and following your doctor’s recommendations can help reduce the chances of a recurrence.

Can I expect immediate pain relief after the surgery?2023-07-21T13:31:13+01:00

While some patients experience immediate pain relief after the surgery, it’s normal to have some discomfort during the initial recovery period. Pain should gradually subside as the elbow heals and rehabilitation progresses.
