There is no doubt that active sports that involve throwing, catching, or swinging a bat can put our elbows at risk. However, so can using a computer mouse, typing on a keyboard, or wielding a paintbrush for a living.
Although elbows are susceptible to sudden injury, the majority of problems often come from overuse. This can result in muscle and tendon problems, such as tennis elbow, tendonitis, biceps tendon injuries.
Dr. Thomas has extensive experience in treating elbow conditions. The good news is most of these conditions respond very well to conservative, non-surgical treatment. However, if surgery is required, Dr. Thomas is a thorough and experienced surgeon, board certified and fellowship trained in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques.
