Elbow Surgery at Clemenceau Medical Center Dubai

refers to any surgical procedure performed on the elbow joint to treat various conditions or injuries. The elbow joint is a complex hinge joint that allows for bending and straightening of the arm, as well as rotation of the forearm.

 

There are several different types of elbow surgeries, depending on the specific issue being addressed. Some common elbow surgeries include:

  • Arthroscopy: This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small camera called an arthroscope to visualize and treat problems within the elbow joint. It is often used to diagnose and treat conditions such as loose bodies (small fragments of bone or cartilage), tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and osteoarthritis.
  • Ligament repair or reconstruction: Ligament injuries, such as a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) or radial collateral ligament (RCL), may require surgical repair or reconstruction. These procedures involve repairing or replacing the damaged ligament to restore stability to the elbow joint.
  • Fracture fixation: Elbow fractures, such as a radial head or olecranon fracture, may require surgical intervention to realign and stabilize the broken bones. This can involve using screws, plates, or wires to hold the fractured bones together until they heal.
  • Tendon repair: Injuries to the tendons that surround the elbow joint, such as the biceps or triceps tendons, may require surgical repair. This involves reattaching the torn or ruptured tendon to its original attachment site.
  • Elbow replacement: In severe cases of arthritis or significant joint damage, an elbow replacement surgery may be considered. This procedure involves removing the damaged parts of the elbow joint and replacing them with artificial components.

The specific type of elbow surgery recommended will depend on the underlying condition, severity of the injury, and the patient’s overall health.

It’s Important to consult with an orthopedic surgeon who can evaluate your specific situation and recommend the most appropriate treatment option.
