The following research study has been approved to determine the safety and effectiveness of concentrated platelets prepared by using the Biomet Biologics, Inc., Warsaw, Indiana, RecoverŪ Platelet Separation Kit in patients with chronic tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis). Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) contains factors that are important in the healing process. Participants will receive an injection with or without PRP.

Unlike other traditional tennis elbow treatments that may include compression forearm bands and/or surgery, the RecoverŪ Kit technique involves a simple injection performed in the office. Only those patients that meet the pre-defined approved inclusion/exclusion criteria are eligible to volunteer in this study.
