Active Comparator: Arthroscopic tenotomy
Patients who are in this group will have arthroscopic tenotomy. A scope is used to see the tendon and release it.
Procedure: Arthroscopic tenotomy
This is a surgical procedure where small incisions are made and a scope is used to see the tendon and release it.
Active Comparator: Open tenotomy
Patients in this group will undergo open tenotomy. This involves opening the skin to expose the muscle and tendon, and then the tendon is released.
Procedure: Open tenotomy
This involves opening the skin on the arm up to expose the muscle and tendon. There is a total of 1 incision made.
Active Comparator: Debridement and repair
The patients in this group will undergo an arthroscopic technique (scope and small incision) to go in and remove any tissue that is diseased/does not belong and repair the tear(s) in the tendon.
Procedure: Debridement and repair
This involves using an arthroscopic technique (using a scope and a small incision) to go in and remove any tissue that is diseased/does not belong and repairing the tear(s) in the tendon. There is a total of 1-2 incisions made.
- symptom severity and functional outcome score (Patient Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]The primary outcome measure will be the difference btetwee the pre and post operative assessments of questionnaire and symptom severity.
