Why Yale Medicine?
  • We provide treatments and techniques that are not widely available elsewhere.

You don't have to be a tennis player or golfer to develop a painful case of elbow tendinitis, also known as "tennis elbow" or the less common "golfer's elbow." Knitters, musicians and many other people who use their hands extensively can get elbow tendinitis.

Yale Medicine’s Department of orthopaedics and rehabilitation provides advanced treatments and techniques for elbow tendinitis that are not widely available elsewhere.
