If you are experiencing chronic elbow pain that is interfering with your ability to accomplish basic activities and is making day-to-day life less enjoyable, you may want to consider having elbow replacement surgery at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic in Durham. We’re a community-based clinic that offers specialized care and personalized service for all types of orthopaedic conditions, and our fellowship-trained physicians ensure that the needs of our patients are always our top priority.
Elbow pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Severe fractures
- Degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) due to the deterioration of elbow cartilage
- Post-traumatic arthritis
- Joint instability following ligament damage
When you visit North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, our doctors will explore your conservative treatment options first to see if you can find the relief you are looking for without having to undergo surgery. Options may include taking pain and anti-inflammatory medications, using ice packs, physical therapy, and more. If nonsurgical methods don’t adequately reduce your symptoms, you may need to consider total elbow replacement surgery.
The sports medicine specialists at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic will meet with you, review your symptoms and medical history, and help determine if elbow replacement surgery is the right option for you.
