The elbow is one of the most complicated joints in the body. Our doctors thoroughly evaluate the source of your pain or immobility to make an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan.
Treatment for your elbow pain, arthritis, tingling, or weakness begins with proven conservative therapies. We offer a full spectrum of treatments, including common therapies such as pain medication, splinting, bracing, steroid injections, and targeted physical therapy.
Cubital Tunnel Release
This outpatient procedure for cubital tunnel syndrome is performed under regional anesthesia. It reduces pressure on your elbow’s ulnar nerve and alleviates pain and weakness in your elbow, hands, and fingers.
Joint Contracture Release
If you suffer from a stiff elbow that won’t extend or flex properly, our surgeons can remove bone that's blocking your movement and release scarred muscle or ligaments. This increases your elbow’s range of motion.
Ruptured Bicep and Tricep Tendon Repair
Restores movement in an injured arm by reattaching torn tendons in either the bicep or tricep to the appropriate forearm bone using stitches or metal implants.
Commonly called Tommy John Surgery, this procedure repairs injury to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow by replacing the damaged ligament with a tendon from another area of the body.
When elbow pain or injury requires surgery, our surgeons use small incisions and a tiny camera to remove bone spurs, loose fragments, or a portion of the diseased bone lining. This minimally invasive approach means you experience less pain and a quicker return to normal activities. Our surgeons may also use elbow arthroscopy before reconstructive surgery to get a better view of the elbow joint and ligaments affected by elbow arthritis, tendonitis, or instability so your surgery is more precise.
Osteotomy and Synovectomy
Relieves painful symptoms associated with elbow arthritis by removing part of the bone or part or all of the diseased bone lining.
Co-developed at Duke, the popular Coonrad/Morrey artificial elbow joint set the standard for elbow replacement. We are among the top centers in the country offering elbow replacement surgery, also known as elbow arthroplasty. We receive referrals from other centers around the country because of our superior patient outcomes and have the experience needed to handle both first-time and corrective elbow joint replacements.
