Elbow Surgery at Middlesex Hospital
Try to count how often you use your elbows during an hour of just about any activity. Imagine multiplying those hours by days, weeks and years. If you don’t have pain, inflammation, or limited flexibility, you can go your entire life without giving your elbows a second thought. But if you’ve suffered an elbow fracture, muscle strains and injuries -- or deterioration typically caused by arthritis or osteoarthritis -- moving your arm becomes an exercise in constant pain and frustration.
When non-surgical treatments and medications alone are no longer effective, corrective elbow surgery is an option. The goal of surgery is to relieve pain and to preserve or enhance joint function.
At Middlesex Hospital, our orthopedic surgery department specializes in a variety of diagnostic procedures designed to carefully analyze your elbow injury or condition and determine the best course of action. We then help you navigate surgical and non-surgical recommendations and follow-up requirements. If your elbow requires surgery, our Board-certified surgeons and highly experienced orthopedic surgical team perform a variety of advanced surgeries, using the most sophisticated tools, customized materials and technologies.
Following surgery, rehabilitation plays a vital role in getting you back to your daily activities. At Middlesex Hospital, we customize your physical therapy program to help you regain elbow strength, agility and motion, and to promote healthy healing and a faster recovery.
