Total Elbow Replacement
Elbow replacement surgery was first described in the 1950s. These early designs were used sparingly due to the complexity of the elbow anatomy, technical difficulty of the surgery and high rates of subsequent prosthetic failure. Over the subsequent two to three decades, advances in understanding of the elbow anatomy, biomechanics, and implant design led to the current elbow replacement prothesis.
Similar to other joints around body, arthroscopy can be used to evaluate and treat a multitude of elbow pathology and injuries. In this procedure, a small camera is introduced into the elbow which allows for direct visualization of the joint surfaces and surrounding soft tissue including capsule and tendon structures.
Elbow Ligament Reconstruction
The elbow is a complex joint of the upper limb formed by the articulation of the long bone of the upper arm or humerus and the two bones of the forearm, namely, radius and ulna. It is one of the important joints of the upper limb and is involved in basic movements such as flexion and extension of the upper limb and rotation of the forearm.
Elbow Tendon and Ligament Repair
The elbow joint also has the attachment of the common flexor and common extensor tendons. These groups of muscle assist in rotational movement of the forearm as well as the movements of the wrist and hand.
