An elbow replacement is needed when the joint is damages beyond repair. This is done by replacing the joint by artificial joint made up of a metal and plastic. This helps get rid of pain and improved elbow motion and function.
It is a minimally invasive procedure performed to diagnose and treat elbow conditions such as arthritis, stiffness, and cartilage defects. By avoiding open incisions it makes way for faster recovery and is common in treating sports injuries.
These sports injury conditions are first managed by providing Physical therapy and Medication. Pain killers could be recommended to get relief from pain. Few injections could also be effective for a short term.
Orthotic devices, which are support straps that help improve the functioning of the parts and reduce pain are used to restrict the limb movement in certain directions thus allowing it to heal.
Surgery is the final option performed in special cases where repairing of the muscles are done as needed.
Biceps and Triceps Tendon Repair
The treatment involves re-attaching the torn tissues to the bone using small metal implants.
In this surgery a torn UCL inside the elbow is repaired by replacing it with a tissue graft constructed from taking a tissue from elsewhere in the body. The goal of the surgery is to stabilize the elbow and reduce or eliminate pain and regain the motion.
