Elbow Conditions And Treatments
Pain in the elbow often results from accidents, overuse or degenerative diseases. The orthopedic specialists at PinnacleHealth diagnose and treat a variety of elbow conditions, including:
- Torn ligaments
If you suffer from elbow pain, we will work with you to diagnose the problem and devise a treatment plan that may first include nonsurgical options such as rest, physical therapy, injections or over-the-counter medications to relieve pain and inflammation. But if your symptoms persist or get worse, surgical intervention may be the best option.
Experts In Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
At PinnacleHealth, we specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques that decrease pain and recovery time. Most of our procedures are laparoscopic and/or use robotic capabilities, resulting in smaller incisions and minimal blood loss and scarring. Types of surgical procedures for the elbow include:
- Diagnostic exploration
- Bone spur removal
- Joint capsule loosening
- Cartilage repair
- Repair of damaged tendons
