Golfer’s Elbow Treatment – Surgical and Nonsurgical Options for Residents of Houston, TX
Golfer’s elbow is a common condition that requires comprehensive treatment for the pain and discomfort that it tends to cause. Caused by inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow, this condition is most frequently seen in golfers, but can also affect tennis players and other individuals who frequently flex and rotate their wrists.
At Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Houston, Texas, we offer both surgical and nonsurgical therapies for golfer’s elbow and other similar injuries. Our orthopedic specialists are committed to helping patients find relief from their symptoms to get them back to the activities that they love.
When it comes to golfer’s elbow treatment, nonsurgical therapies such as anti-inflammatory medications and rest are often quite effective. Other potential treatments include:
- The application of ice and heat
- A counterforce brace
- Stretching and strengthening exercises
- Prescription painkillers
- Tenex (a minimally invasive procedure that uses ultrasonic energy to break down scar tissue)
Most people with golfer’s elbow are able to manage their symptoms without turning to surgery. However, there are some instances in which stiffness, pain, muscle weakness or tingling persist despite conservative care. In these instances, Advanced Orthopaedics may recommend surgery.
The board-certified and double-board-certified surgeons at our Houston orthopedics center have extensive experience with a variety of procedures, including those designed to treat golfer’s elbow. Our team practices both minimally invasive and traditional techniques, carefully evaluating each patient’s unique diagnosis to determine the best approach. Not only are we concerned with achieving a positive outcome, but also helping our patients recover quickly and with few complications.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Overall excellent experience with Dr Cubbage and his outstanding staff. I flew in overseas for a 2nd opinion and was accommodated by his office. My situation was not good and had lower lumbar surgery (METRx discectomy) for a herniated disc. I walked out after surgery and I am on my way to a quick recovery. I have a very small incision and was very well looked after. Thank you Dr Cubbage! Arrived in Houston in a wheelchair and will fly back overseas 10 days after surgery on my own 2 feet
Awesome! Highly recommend Dr.Matthew Cubbage . He is the best of the best Orthopedic Surgeon with special healing hands any patient will experience. He is highly knowledgeable, caring and confident since everything that he explained to me that would happen and what to expect is very accurate. Dr. Matthew Cubbage care and people skills are clearly seen and felt also by his team he selected-Tim and Karen. Courteous and promptly responds on you calls before and throughout your recovery. Reborn.
Each procedure done by Dr. Patel has been an improvement. Very pleased.
Dr. Patel has been a great Doctor for me. When I was referred to after discussion we decided to do injections in my back. The first two did not work so did two more in a different section of my back. These injections worked great. I’m now able to sleep at night and the numbness in my foot is almost gone. The tingling in my foot & leg is gone and I am very happy about that. I am extremely happy that Dr. Patel is my Doctor. She has been a good listener when I tell her where I hurt and talks to me about what she feels should be done. The final decision is always mine.
On Nov. 22, 2017, I had a spinal injection in my lower back and it was an instant miracle in my life! For the first time in 4 intolerable months of pain, I was finally pain free, and I am now getting a second chance to live again! I am so grateful to Dr. Patel for my new life, and to God for guiding me to her! Thank you so very much Dr. Patel – you are God’s gift to me, thank you for being so awesome at what you do.
Dr. Patel is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She is pretty good at her job. She makes it plain and simple. She is also very thoughtful. I was very glad to have met her. In other words she is pretty good.
The surgery done by Dr. S. Patel (Actually injections) & the mild medications she has prescribed has surely made my lower back -hip-leg less painful. I have complete confidence in her medical judgement & advice. She will administer second injection in June.
Dr. Patel is a very good Pain Management Doctor. She is one of my favorite doctors.
Dr. Patel has been great at my pain relief. She doesn’t force me to take any meds I don’t want, or injections. She will give me the injection I want when I need it. Great friendly Doctor.
Thank you for the opportunity to express how pleased I am with the excellent care of Stacy A. Bacon, M.D. I have confidence in her ability to care for me as she successfully partially replaced a broken hip 10 years ago, 2007. I also want to compliment Cheryl who set up the appointment. She represents Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine very well.
