Chronic Elbow Pain
Elbow pain can develop when the joint deteriorates, resulting in inflammation, bone spurs, stiffness, and more. The most common causes of chronic elbow problems are severe fractures, joint instability due to ligament damage, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis. When one of these conditions causes irreversible damage to the joint, a replacement procedure using an elbow prosthesis can provide symptom relief. During this surgery, metallic implants are attached to the humerus and ulna bones and connected with a hinge that allows for normal movement within the joint.
Contact North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic today to schedule a consultation with one of our orthopedic surgeons, who can review your symptoms and medical history and determine if an elbow prosthesis is an option for you or if your symptoms can be managed using conservative treatment methods. We serve patients throughout the Durham area and can even provide a next-day appointment if needed.
