The elbow joint is a complex hinge joint between the upper arm and forearm that is also designed to allow rotation of the forearm for opening doors, bottles etc. Some of the conditions that occur at the elbow joint may be caused from repetitive movement of the elbow following sports like tennis and golf.
Nerve entrapment syndromes such as cubital tunnel compressions
Inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis etc.
Comprehensive assessment including x-rays, MRIs, ultra sound and arthroscopy identifies the problem and helps determine treatment choices. According to the diagnosis elbow treatment may be treated conservatively with physical therapy, splinting, casting, shots or medication.
Surgical treatment may be necessary and this could involve arthroscopes and minimally invasive surgery to pinning and plating for fracture repair.
Many elbow injuries are sports related and our surgeons are certified in sports orthopedics and provide extensive acute care management and rehabilitation for sports injuries.
