Elbow surgery

Elbow surgery mainly concerns trauma and its sequelae, problems with chronic tendinopathy, such as epicondylitis and epitrochleitis, lesions of the biceps tendon, compression of the ulnar nerve, and lesions of the articular cartilage.

Who are the people at risk?

All patient profiles can develop chronic and disabling elbow pain, often associated with epicondylitis, epitrochleitis, or loss of sensitivity with loss of hand strength caused by compression of the ulnar nerve.

Indeed, these pathologies are encountered as well in the sportsman as in the occasional handyman, the daily user of the computer keyboard, or in a subject without any favorable factor.

How is elbow surgery performed?

Interventions on the elbow are generally carried out under regional anesthesia, on an outpatient basis or through a short hospital stay, and under a tourniquet, which prevents any bleeding during the operation.

The progress of orthopedic surgery, in particular with the development of arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery techniques, medical implants, the occasional contribution of growth factors (or PRP) make it possible to provide an increasingly reliable response , with constraints in terms of immobilization and stopping sport or work more and more mastered.
