Elbow surgery is a specialized orthopedic procedure aimed at restoring function and alleviating pain in individuals with complex elbow injuries or conditions. This surgical intervention becomes necessary when conservative treatments such as rest, physical therapy, and medication do not provide adequate relief. Elbow surgery can address a variety of issues, including fractures, ligament tears (such as UCL tears or Tommy John surgery), tendon injuries (such as biceps or triceps tendon repairs), and conditions like arthritis or osteochondritis dissecans. With advancements in surgical techniques and technologies, elbow surgery offers improved outcomes and shorter recovery times, allowing patients to regain their quality of life and return to their daily activities.
The elbow joint is susceptible to various injuries that can significantly impact its function and mobility. Among the most common types of elbow injuries are tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), and elbow fractures. Tennis elbow, characterized by pain on the outer side of the elbow, often occurs due to repetitive motions and overuse of the forearm muscles. Golfer’s elbow, on the other hand, manifests as pain on the inner side of the elbow and is commonly caused by repetitive gripping and wrist movements. Elbow fractures can result from traumatic incidents and vary in severity from hairline fractures to complete breaks.
Elbow specialists, such as orthopedic surgeons with expertise in elbow conditions, possess in-depth knowledge of the complex anatomy and functioning of the elbow joint. Their specialized training equips them to accurately diagnose and effectively treat a wide range of elbow injuries and conditions. By collaborating with these experts, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation, personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs, and access to the latest advancements in elbow surgery techniques.
