When Dr. Yaffe provides treatment for elbow pain, it is always with the goal of helping patients return to the lives they love using the least invasive techniques available. That’s why he specializes in leading-edge conservative elbow pain treatment options and utilizes the latest technology available in the field of upper-extremity orthopedics.
Common orthopedic elbow treatments Dr. Yaffe provides include:
Elbow Epicondylitis is a painful condition involving inflammation and degeneration of the tendons that attach to the outer (lateral) or inner (medial) portion of the elbow and forearm.
Although most patients will improve with rest, splinting, anti-inflammatory medications and therapy, some patients will continue to have severe pain that limits activities, work, and athletics.
The Tenex FAST procedure is a minimally-invasive procedure that identifies and removes pain-generating scar tissue from the elbow. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and takes about 15 minutes.
A small opening in the skin is made and the micro tip of the Tenex removal system is inserted into the affected area. The tip releases ultrasonic energy, which breaks and emulsifies the scar tissue, while preserving normal tissue. The area is covered with a bandage and no sutures (stitches) are required.
Patients return to light daily activities of daily living immediately and most normal activities in approximately 4-6 weeks.
Fractures of the radius bone are among the most common fractures treated by an upper extremity surgeon. Fractures that are displaced, angulated, or involve the joint surface may require operative repair to restore normal alignment and position and to provide a superior long-term functional outcome.
