Your Elbow

Patients who have suffered an elbow injury or are dealing with pain around this joint know how difficult working through this can be. That is why our team here at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation is committed to providing the treatment and intervention methods patients need to get back to full strength. From diagnosis to treatment, there is no better team to work with than ours.

Common Elbow Injuries And Conditions

Much like any other joint in the body, there are many problems that your elbow may be subjected to. A quick and comprehensive diagnosis is one of the most critical parts of the treatment process. Fortunately, our team is well versed in this area of practice. We can diagnose patients with any of the below problems before creating the treatment regimen needed for a full recovery:

  • Bone breaks.
  • Stress fractures.
  • Bursitis.
  • Dislocations.
  • Ligamentous issues.
  • Osteoarthritis.
  • Sprains.
  • Additional issues.


Our team’s first treatment option would like to call out, which we provide for elbow injuries involving bracing, splinting, or casting. Specific injuries require a period of immobilization to heal fully. When this takes place, our orthopedists will determine which method will work best for you. Although some restrict movement more than others, you can trust our team to provide you with the brace, splint, or cast necessary to restore functionality to the joint.

Surgical Procedures

In cases where more severe issues have occurred, surgical procedures may be required to correct the problem. The type of operation administered will directly relate to the injury or condition the patient is dealing with. Examples of what patients may expect to take place during the surgery include:

  • Repairing damaged or torn tissues that support or surround the joint.
  • Realigning any structural damage.
  • Removing any damaged tissues or floating bodies.

Additional Treatment Methods    

As previously stated, our team is well versed in diagnosing and treating ailments of the elbow. We know each patient’s needs will differ on a case by case basis, which is why we never take a cookie-cutter approach to treatment. In addition to the previously mentioned treatment methods, depending on your condition, we will also offer you the below:

  • Steroidal injections.
  • Prescriptions of anti-inflammatory or pain relief medicine.
  • Referring patients to a trusted physical therapist.
