Elbow

Elbow Conditions

Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common causes of elbow pain, swelling, or numbness. Patients also suffer from elbow fractures or tendon tears including the condition commonly known as “tennis elbow”, which is a microscopic rupture of the elbow tendons. Our orthopedic physicians are fellowship-trained in sports medicine and have extensive experience treating these various elbow injuries and ailments by prescribing physical therapy, bracing or medications, which can help reduce symptoms of swelling, pain and stiffness.

Surgical Options

If surgery is required, there have been numerous technological advancements recently around elbow surgery that can greatly reduce complications and help facilitate a faster recovery. Less invasive treatments, such as elbow arthroscopy have proven to be quite successful in helping patients regain their range-of-motion.
Our doctors perform the following surgical procedures for the elbow: • Arthroscopic Bankart Repair • Arthroscopy of the Elbow
