An old paper by the late, great British surgeon RS Garden, who reported that the results of surgery for tennis elbow were such that “no patient failed to benefit in some way from the operation.” This paper is mostly included in my bibliography as a fine historical example of overconfidence about surgery. See Kroslak.
