The elbow is a simple hinge joint but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to fix when things go wrong. We often see dysfunction in other parts of the limb show up as trouble with the elbow. Conditions like medial and lateral epicondylitis (golfer’s or tennis elbow) are often a clue to problems elsewhere. Other problems with the elbow include trauma (elbow fracture and dislocation), arthritis, overuse injuries, cysts, growths and bursitis.
The elbow has a unique tendency to develop stiffness and careful rehabilitation after injury is critical to achieve the best outcome after injury.
When problems do arise, the Orthopedic doctors at Edmonds Orthopedic Center are prepared with the latest advances in arthroscopic techniques, open elbow surgery and elbow replacement. Our doctors are fellowship-trained and have decades of experience treating conditions affecting the elbow.
