Elbow Arthroscopy

Elbow arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure useful in treating many painful elbow conditions. This procedure minimizes scar formation which is particularly important in the elbow which can quickly lose motion after injury or surgery. Cartilage injuries, bone fragments and bone spurs in athletes can be removed using this advanced technique. Likewise, arthritis and tendonitis are often treated with “the scope” leading to rapid improvement of an otherwise chronically painful joint. This is an outpatient procedure usually performed with 3 to 5 incisions about as wide as a pencil. A fiber optic HD camera is inserted into the joint and specialized instruments allow for repair of cartilage and tendons as well as removal of diseased tissue. The elbow will remain swollen for several days after the surgery and will drain for several days. While post-surgical course depends on the specific procedure performed, typically very little immobilization is required after this procedure although a generous amount of physical therapy is often necessary due to the elbow joint’s tendency to stiffen after surgery. Dr. Frush and Dr. Bak have extensive experience with arthroscopic treatment of elbow injuries.
