Elbow Arthroscopy

Some of the common elbow injuries include elbow fractures, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and elbow tendonitis. Elbow arthroscopy, also referred to as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery, is a surgical procedure that is performed through tiny incisions to evaluate and treat several elbow conditions.

UCL Reconstruction (Tommy John Surgery)

Commonly called Tommy John surgery, this procedure involves reconstructing a damaged ligament on the inside of the elbow called the ulnar or medial collateral ligament with a tendon graft obtained from your own body or a donor. The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), also called medial collateral ligament

Total Elbow Replacement

Elbow joint replacement, also referred to as total elbow arthroplasty, is an operative procedure to treat the symptoms of arthritis that have not responded to non-surgical treatments. The goal of elbow joint replacement surgery is to eliminate your pain and increase the mobility of your elbow joint.

Elbow Surgery

Elbow surgery is a surgical procedure for the treatment of an elbow injury or elbow condition. The procedure involves repairing a diseased, damaged, or degenerated elbow joint in order to eliminate pain and restore normal function. The elbow is a complex joint formed by the articulation of three bones: the humerus, radius, and ulna.

Biceps Tendon Repair

Biceps tendon repair is a surgical procedure to restore a biceps tendon that has been torn or ruptured by severe trauma or injury. The biceps is a large muscle located in the front of your upper arm and runs from the shoulder to the elbow joint. It helps in bending your elbow as well as in rotational movements of your forearm.

Distal Biceps Repair

The biceps is a large muscle located in the front of your upper arm and runs from the shoulder to the elbow joint. It is attached to the bones of the shoulder and elbow by tendons. The distal biceps is the area where the biceps is attached to the forearm bone in the elbow.

ORIF of the Humerus Fractures

A humerus fracture is a condition that occurs when there is a break in the humerus or upper arm bone that commonly occurs as a result of severe trauma. Fracture of the humerus can affect the movement and function of your arm as well as your work and activities of daily living. Humerus fractures are quite common and occur in individuals of all ages from children to the elderly.

Elbow Ligament Reconstruction

Ligament reconstruction is considered in patients with ligament rupture. Your surgeon will make an incision over the elbow. Care is taken to move muscles, tendons, and nerves out of the way. The donor's tendon is harvested from either the forearm or below the knee. Your surgeon drills holes into the bones of the upper arm and forearm, around the elbow joint.

Elbow Tendon and Ligament Repair

The elbow joint is supported by the ulnar collateral ligament, radial collateral ligament, and the annular ligament. These ligaments provide stability and strength to the elbow joint. The elbow joint also has the attachment of the common flexor and common extensor tendons.

Cubital Tunnel Release (Medial Epicondylectomy)

Cubital tunnel release is a surgical procedure to correct cubital tunnel syndrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition characterized by compression of the ulnar nerve in an area of the elbow called the cubital tunnel. The ulnar nerve travels down the back of the elbow behind the bony bump called the medial epicondyle, and through a passageway called the cubital tunnel.
