Surgery is a treatment option for persistent cases of tennis elbow where non-surgical approaches have failed.
In some cases, elbow arthroscopy is first performed to rule out other causes of elbow pain, as well as to assess the stability of the elbow.
The standard surgical treatment for tennis elbow involves cleaning up the damaged tendon and repairing it where possible.
