Elbow Structure and Function

The elbow is a hinge joint that connects the humerus bone in the upper arm to the radius and ulna bones in the lower arm. The elbow’s anatomy is made up of a complex system of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Elbow injuries can come in several forms and affect people of all ages. At Orthopedic Specialists, we’re here to help you through all of your elbow issues.

Common Elbow Concerns

Elbow pain or elbow injury can have a variety of underlying causes. These include issues such as:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tendonitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome

Minor elbow stiffness or pain can often be linked to a more serious underlying issue. Here are a few indicators that you should see an elbow specialist.

  • Discomfort or difficulty when moving your arm
  • Persistent pain even when your arm is not in use
  • Aching or stiffness in the morning or after extended rest

The elbow specialists and orthopedic care team at Orthopedic Specialists are here to help you. From minor discomfort to chronic pain, it’s our goal to provide you relief. Though we will always consider nonsurgical treatment first, if you do require elbow surgery, our highly skilled elbow surgeons utilize the newest surgical methods and frequently perform procedures including:

  • Lateral epicondylitis debridement (for tennis elbow)
  • Medial epicondylectomy (for golfer’s elbow)
  • Total elbow arthroplasty
  • Elbow replacement surgery
  • Cubital tunnel release surgery
