Arthroscopy is a common orthopedic surgical procedure in which a joint (“arthro”) is viewed (“scopy”) using a small camera. Through small incisions, usually two 1/4″ incisions, it allows your surgeon to have a clear view of the inside of the elbow. This aids in the diagnosis and treatment of common elbow problems.

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a common condition in which the lateral (outside) aspect of the elbow becomes increasingly painful. Typically if conservative measures (NSAIDs, injections, physical therapy) are unsuccessful, surgery may be considered. By making a small incision (2-3 cm), the lateral epicondyle (outer aspect of the elbow) and tendons can be visualized. The degenerative tissue is removed, and the remaining healthy tissue is repaired over the site of the pain. Occasionally a small hole is drilled in the bone underlying this tissue to stimulate healing.
