Elbow conditions we treat

Lateral Epicondylitis Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, is characterized by inflammation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow. Forearm motions such as gripping, twisting, or lifting can lead to tiny tears in the tendons, resulting in pain and limited elbow function. Our specialists employ various treatment approaches, including conservative measures such as:

  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Bracing

In cases where non-surgical treatments are ineffective, we may recommend minimally invasive procedures to promote healing and alleviate symptoms.

Medial Epicondylitis Golfer's Elbow

Medial epicondylitis, or golfer's elbow, is similar to tennis elbow but affects the tendons on the inside of the elbow. It is commonly caused by wrist and hand motions, such as gripping or swinging a golf club.

Our specialists will evaluate your condition and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include the following:

  • Rest
  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Corticosteroid injections

In cases where conservative measures fail to provide relief, our skilled surgeons may recommend surgical options to repair and restore the affected tendons.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Ulnar Neuropathy

Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve, which passes through the elbow's cubital tunnel, becomes compressed or irritated. This can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness
  • Pain in the elbow, forearm, and hand

Our specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the severity of the condition and develop a personalized treatment plan. Non-surgical approaches, such as activity modifications, splinting, and physical therapy, are often effective in managing symptoms. In cases where conservative treatments are unsuccessful, surgical intervention may be recommended to relieve pressure on the ulnar nerve.

Elbow Fractures

Elbow fractures can occur due to traumatic injuries, such as falls or direct blows to the elbow. Fractures may involve the upper arm bone (humerus), forearm bones (radius and ulna), or the elbow joint itself. Our specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating various types of elbow fractures, ranging from stable fractures that can be managed with conservative treatments, such as immobilization and physical therapy, to more complex fractures that may require surgical intervention for realignment and stabilization.

Biceps Tendon Repair

Biceps tendon tears can occur near the elbow, resulting in pain, weakness, and limited range of motion. Our specialists are skilled in diagnosing and treating biceps tendon injuries.

Treatment options may include conservative measures such as:

  • Rest
  • Activity modification
  • Physical therapy

In cases where the tear is severe or causing significant impairment, surgical repair may be recommended. Our experienced surgeons utilize advanced techniques to reattach the torn tendon and restore strength and function to the biceps muscle.
