|I have an elbow issue. Per my recent MRI, the following was noted:
“There is a full-thickness tear of the common extensor tendon at its attachment to the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. There is no retraction. The radial collateral ligament is intact. No muscle abnormalities are seen.”
I am 53 years old, and play recreational ice hockey (probably how the injury started). Physical therapy has not helped my situation. My doctor is recommending lateral epicondylar release surgery.
Is PRP a suitable alternative to surgery for my elbow issue?
|It certainly is a suitable alternative to surgery as it is less invasive. If done correctly it could help.|
