I am having arthroscopy for tennis elbow. Will I be able to go back to sports after surgery?

If your results are as good as those in a recent study, you shouldn't have any problems getting back to sports. All 12 patients included in the study were eventually able to return to sports, with the exception of a 70-year-old man whose symptoms had lasted for 20 years before surgery.

You'll want to take it easy for at least a little while after surgery. Talk with your doctor or physical therapist about how to return to activities while ensuring a good recovery.
