Open Medial Epicondylar Release

A medial epicondylar release is performed when a patient has failed conservative treatment for chronic medial epicondylitis (“golfer’s elbow”) and continues to have pain. The pain occurs on the inside of the elbow. Often patients who suffer from medial epicondylitis also have a torn or damaged tendon at the elbow. This can also be repaired during this procedure if necessary.
