Elbow Surgeries

Besides medical management, in selective cases of tennis elbow/ golfer elbow, loose bodies in elbow, wrist TFCC injuries, ligament injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome arthroscopy/ appropriate surgeries are done.

Also fractures around wrist / elbow / hand in paediatric and adult population are catered.

If a disease such as rheumatoid arthritis or an injury has harmed your elbow, your doctor may recommend surgery to replace the joint, so you have less pain and can move better.

During elbow replacement, a surgeon replaces your elbow with an artificial joint made from two implants that attach to the bones in your arm. A metal and plastic hinge joins the implants together.

What Are the Risks?

The most common complications are:

  • Infection
  • Injury to nerves and blood vessels
  • Allergic reaction to the artificial joint
  • Broken bone
  • Stiffness or instability of the joint
  • Loosening or wearing of the artificial parts
  • Weakness or failure in the tendons of your arm
  • Pain
  • There are risks because of the anesthesia, such as an allergic reaction to those medicines and breathing problems. As with any surgery, bleeding and blood clots are possible, too.
