Elbow surgery

A delicate articulation

Conditions affecting the elbow are less frequent than problems with hands or shoulders. Nevertheless, if not treated properly, they can have drastic consequences. Traumas to the elbow can affect the bones (fractures) or ligaments. Conservative treatment (drugs, splints and physiotherapy) is applied in most cases. Nevertheless, surgical interventions are sometimes necessary to reconstruct and screw together fragments or repair ligaments.

The most common degenerative pathology of the elbow is epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow. A conservative course may be adopted, depending on the case, or, it might require surgical intervention to repair the affected tendon. The nerves traversing the elbow may also be affected in time, which entails surgery for decompression of the nerve.
