    *** injection and percutaneous release common extensor tendon

    I have had a 5 mo history of lateral epicondylitis due to an injury at work. Per MRI, I had a high grade tear at the common extensor tendon at the lateral epicondyle without tendonopathy. I have had 2 cortizone shots prior to this *** injection and percutaneous release. Has anyone had this procedure done? Did it work? If no change in 3 mo, will proceed to open procedure.

    I have had *** in my wrist, as well as in my hamstring tendons. I also had needle tenotomy. The *** has helped immensely. I just had to go back for a second *** procedure for one of the hamstring tendons which wasn't fully healed.

    However, from my own research, i thought that cortisone is not supposed to be used in tendons. I am not sure if that is what you had. I would get a second opinion before surgery. My doctor does "regenerative medicine." Good luck.
