Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

Despite its name, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) can occur whether or not you play tennis. Physicians at the Jefferson Shoulder and Elbow Center specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of tennis elbow and other chronic tendon issues. Our Center is the largest, most experienced program in the Delaware Valley dedicated to the surgical treatment of shoulder and elbow conditions. Our shoulder and elbow specialists include six fellowship-trained shoulder and elbow surgeons who see 8,000 to 10,000 new patients annually and provide a full spectrum of operative and nonoperative care to patients with shoulder and elbow conditions.

The Shoulder and Elbow Center works in conjunction with Jefferson's Sports Medicine Center to ensure patients are given the most optimal treatments that will return them to their activities as quickly and as safely as possible.
