Elbow Surgery

Treatment for Common Elbow Conditions

Elbow Xray

When you experience chronic elbow pain, the right solution may be closer than you think. The orthopedic surgeons at Howard County General Hospital perform various elbow surgeries to treat conditions that include tennis elbow (inflammation and degeneration of tendons that attach to the elbow joint), a broken or fractured elbow, arthritis of the elbow (both from normal wear and tear and rheumatoid arthritis), cubital tunnel syndrome (nerve pain in the elbow) and throwing injuries.

When rest, ultrasound, therapeutic exercise and medications to reduce inflammation are not effective, our surgeons can help you decide whether surgery is right for you and which type of procedure will have the best outcome. They can perform arthroscopic (minimally invasive) or traditional (open) elbow surgery to repair fractures and resurface the elbow joint using biologic tissue. For some conditions, a partial or complete elbow replacement is the best alternative. Our orthopedic surgeons can also repair or reconstruct ligaments and, for cubital tunnel syndrome, perform surgery to remove pressure from the nerve.
