The ability to rotate your forearm literally hinges on your elbow. Held together by small ligaments, tendons and bones, the elbow also aids in turning your hand up and down. Instability, stiffness and elbow pain can be triggered for many different reasons. Luckily, our orthopedic experts are highly trained in accurately diagnosing and treating your condition to help relieve any elbow pain you may be experiencing.
Elbow Conditions We Treat
- Tennis Elbow – inflammation of tendons can happen to any person who overworks their elbow.
- UCL Injuries – made famous by legendary baseball player Tommy John, UCL injuries are most common in athletes who overstress a specific ligament in the elbow.
- Bicep Tears – when a bicep tendon tears from the elbow, arm weakness follows.
- Elbow Bursitis – swelling at the tip of your elbow may indicate inflammation of fluid-filled sacs cushioning your elbow.
Surgical Solutions for Elbow Pain
If conservative treatment such as anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, and steroid injections do not help decrease your elbow pain, it may be time to speak to our doctors about surgical treatment options to resolve your elbow pain.
- Elbow Arthroscopy – a minimally invasive procedure in which a small camera allows the surgeon to see inside your joint.
- Elbow Replacement – a procedure done to replace the entire knee joint with an artificial joint.
- Tennis Elbow Surgery – if your tennis elbow doesn’t heal after conservative treatment, surgical treatment using arthroscopy may be best to restore full function.
- Fracture Repair Surgery – for serious fractures to the elbow your doctor may open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure allows the doctor to repair pieces of the fracture and use tools to hold your bones together.
