Inflammation of, or injury to, tendons can cause pain and limited function in the hand and upper extremity. Common causes of elbow pain include tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), and distal biceps tendon injuries.
Tendonitis in the wrist and hand can cause trigger fingers or De Quervain's tenosynovitis. Our doctors can help you recover from tendon problems, whether it requires surgery or not.
