Lateral epicondylitis.

Author information

Hughston Clinic, PC, Columbus, Georgia, USA.


Satisfactory treatment of lateral epicondylitis results from correct diagnosis followed by a well-controlled operative or nonoperative treatment program. Many options for nonoperative and operative treatment exist for lateral epicondylitis. More study is needed on outcomes of both nonoperative treatment and operative treatment so that each patient can attain maximal improvement. Balanced assessments of specific patient populations, along with definitions of the optimal treatment for each group, are required. This will allow physicians to integrate the available information and improve patient care.
