Plan B... and C -- for Tennis Elbow

Dr. DesJardins specializes in the nonsurgical treatment of athletic injuries and problems in patients of all ages. He is the only physician in Northern Kentucky using the highly talked about PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy to treat sports medicine injuries.

PRP therapy, an innovative needle-based office procedure that stimulates the body’s healing process, succeeds for 70 – 75 percent of patients who do not respond to conservative treatment for tennis elbow. Surgery to remove damaged tendons and stimulate blood flow is reserved as a last option for patients who are failing treatment, says Dr. DesJardins.
