for tennis/golfer's elbow? http://www.topazinfo.com/intl/physician/home/home.htm i've had a long bout with golfer's elbow (from tennis) and the orthopaedist gave me a 2nd cortisone shot and said that if that doesn't work he would suggest Topaz. i've been diligently doing PT but I don't seem to be moving forward. dr. said the old tendon debridement surgery could actually leave you worse off while Topaz has no down side. he described Topaz as holes being bored into the "sick" part of the tendon to increase blood flow. says it takes 5 min. anyway, that sounds a lot better than tearing my tendon of the bone and then reattaching it.
