Effective Relief for Tennis Elbow

Here at Nebraska Hand & Shoulder, we have successfully conducted over 250 treatments for tennis elbow, with our patients overwhelmingly reporting excellent results. Our goal is to help you quickly return to your daily routine with minimal downtime. Schedule an appointment today to access the leading surgical solutions for tennis elbow.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

If you’re experiencing a numbing or burning sensation that travels from your elbow to your hand, cubital tunnel syndrome may be at play. This condition can escalate if your sleep involves bent elbows. Fortunately, our specialist offers advanced surgical treatments that shorten recovery time, minimize scarring, and deliver outstanding results.

Immediate treatment for this condition is vital to prevent permanent and irreversible degenerative conditions.

Diagnosing Radial Tunnel Syndrome

Often confused with tennis elbow, radial tunnel syndrome requires a precise diagnosis for effective treatment. Trust our elbow specialists at Nebraska Hand & Shoulder to provide an accurate diagnosis and suitable treatment plan.

Effective Treatment for Elbow Arthritis

If elbow pain impedes your daily life, it could be a result of elbow arthritis, often caused by a past injury. Our elbow orthopaedic surgeon is dedicated to providing effective treatments to alleviate elbow arthritis, enabling you to resume your daily routines without the persistent pain.

One Customer’s Experience At Nebraska Hand & Shoulder Institute, P.C.

I wanted to tell you that Dr. Ichtertz is one of the most effective, affordable, ethical doctors I have ever encountered in my 36 year nursing career!

I have seen the outcome of multiple surgeries he has performed on my husband including hand surgery, carpal tunnel surgery, elbow surgery, and shoulder surgery. Dr Ichtertz was able to perform a laparoscopic shoulder surgery on my husband that would’ve been a total shoulder replacement under most doctor's care! My husband recovered extremely quickly with almost no downtime after each surgery!

My grandfather had hand surgery with him with amazing outcome! My 82 year old mother had surgery for her carpal tunnel problem and went home and continued to clip coupons with that hand the very same day. My uncle has had his hand restored to full function by Dr. Ichtertz also!

I referred my brother to him who is a retired military veteran and now almost retired from Burlington Northern Santa Fe. He has restored my brother to full function after a carpal tunnel and elbow surgery-both the same day. My brother fixed his daughter's car and worked on his lawn the same day that he had surgery in the morning! He was back to work at BNSF two days later! Functioning fully!

My son also had a work up for his broken hand. Many doctors could’ve done surgery on that hand and gotten away with it. Dr Ichtertz was able to review the situation and confirm that my son did not need surgery. His hand recovered just fine.

The thing I find the most fascinating about Dr. Ichtertz is his moral ethical standard! In my 36 year nursing career I have observed many doctors doing procedures that were not best for the patient because they could and because they get paid. There are very few monitoring systems set up for doctors in America! The outcomes for many patients are very detrimental! Dr. Ichtertz only does what is needed and best for the patient. He is never driven by money. He makes it possible to pay out of pocket when insurance doesn’t cover it! And he does his procedures for reasonable prices! He takes great pride in his profession and furthering the science for the benefit of mankind.! I have an amazing amount of respect and awe for Dr. Ichtertz for all the reasons mentioned above!
