Can tennis elbow be caused by PsA?

I’m going in for my third tennis elbow surgery and I believe it’s caused from PsA is there any information anyone has that I could give my orthopedic surgeon? When he did the surgery last time he said he didn’t see any signs of arthritis but I don’t think he understands PSA

  1. Hi , I am sorry you haven't received any responses. When is your surgery? I know that I responded to one of your earlier comments with an article about enthesitis, I am sending it again in case it is helpful: Please keep us posted on how you are feeling.

    1. Yes, tennis elbow can be caused by psoriatic arthritis. It causes inflammation where tendons and ligaments connect to bones. My rheumatologist told me this, and has had to give me steroid injections in my left elbow a couple of times the past few months.
