Elbow Treatment

Elbow Anatomy

The elbow is a hinged joint that has three bones (the humerus, ulna, and radius). The ends of the bone are covered with cartilage. Cartilage makes up for joints' rubbery consistency that allows them to slide easily against one another and absorb shocks. Bones are held together by ligaments that form the joint capsule - a fluid-filled sac surrounding and lubricating the joint.

Elbow Conditions
  • Elbow Osteoarthritis
  • Elbow Fractures
  • Elbow Bursitis
  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Elbow Dislocations
  • Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries
Elbow Treatments
  • Cubital Tunnel Release - A surgical procedure involving ulnar nerve decompression, and in some instances, a transposition of the nerve. The process involves a 3-inch incision made along the ulnar nerve, and the roof of the cubital tunnel being opened to relieve pressure on the nerve.
  • Interposition Arthroplasty of the Elbow - A procedure that may help treat elbow arthritis. The surgeon places new soft tissue between the damaged surfaces of the elbow joint. The soft tissue then forms a false joint.
  • Arthroscopic Debridement - a small camera, known as an arthroscope, is inserted into the elbow through a tiny incision to identify damage or disorders in the elbow. Once the condition has been diagnosed, arthroscopic tools are used to repair any damage.
  • Open Reduction/Internal Fixation Surgery (ORIF) - Suppose the elbow is displaced, unstable, or broken in multiple places. In that case, ORIF surgery might be necessary to ensure the bone heals properly. The 2 step process begins with an incision to access and realign the bone. The next step is piecing the bone fragments together with hardware such as pins, plates, rods, screws, or a combination of these.
