I read on http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00646 (mirror):

Common arthroscopic procedures include: Treatment of tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

There are several elbow surgical treatments that are currently most effective when done as an open, traditional procedure. These include surgeries to: Treat golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis)

Why are medial epicondylopathies more effectively treated with open, traditional surgical procedures than with arthroscopies, whereas it isn't the case for lateral epicondylopathies?
