While hand and wrist disorders affect our mobility, shoulder and elbow disorders can affect simple day-to-day activities, as well as your ability to work and play.

Many problems related to the elbow are treated with non-surgical approaches such as medications, injections, and therapy. When surgery is indicated, advanced and minimally invasive procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and without a hospital stay in most cases.
Many elbow issues can be addressed with minimally invasive surgery. Arthroscopic surgery uses microscopic camera and instruments via small incisions made in the elbow. Disorders that can be corrected using a scope include tendon injuries, tennis elbow and joint inflammation.
Joint Replacement Surgery
As with other joints, when the joint cartilage is too severely damaged or worn, often the only treatment remaining is joint replacement surgery. Severe elbow arthritis can be treated in this way as well.
