Relieve your elbow pain
From tennis elbow to golf elbow and every injury in between, our elbow surgery experts will help relieve your pain and restore your range of motion.
Before we recommend surgery, we will try to treat your elbow injury with conservative options like medication and therapy. But if you have chronic elbow pain that is not responding to other treatment, elbow surgery may be necessary.
With the exception of elbow replacements, most elbow surgeries are performed arthroscopically. These minimally invasive procedures reduce pain and improve recovery time versus traditional open elbow surgery.
Elbow arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure utilizing a tiny camera and tools inserted through small incisions near the elbow joint. Smaller incisions mean little to no scarring, less pain, quicker recovery time, and fewer post-surgery complications.
Elbow arthroscopy is generally used to:
- Remove damaged tissue and bone fragments
- Treat arthritis by removing damaged tissue and smoothing bone surfaces
- As a diagnostic tool to inspect the elbow joint
In an elbow replacement, your orthopedic surgeon will resurface the damaged bone and cartilage. A replacement elbow implant should give you a smooth functioning, pain-free joint. In an elbow replacement, all or part of the elbow joint may be replaced.
Elbow Tendinitis (Tennis Elbow)
Elbow tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendons in and around the elbow area brought on by overuse, injury, and repetitive motion. Only a small minority of tennis elbow cases don’t heal using non-surgical treatments. Tennis elbow surgery is typically an arthroscopic procedure that involves releasing the tendon and removing damaged tissue. In some cases, tendon tears can be repaired.
