    Re:Lateral epicondylitis surgery complications

    I had lateral epicondylitis surgery in 2010. It has been five months and im still in alot of pain. I had to go back to work and I'm finding it hard to make it through the day because of the pain. I called the doctor and they told me to find somewhere to go for pain management. I did and they said they could not do anything because of the acher pin in my arm, what should I do?

It is disappointing to see that the journal publishes a review with misleading treatment recommendations. The review article suffers from the inherent weaknesses of the narrative review form with an unjustified favourisation of "promising" pharmacological and surgical interventions. Physical inte...
