Elbow
Arthroscopy

Elbow arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique that offers orthopedic surgeons the ability to access, navigate, and operate on the elbow joint through very small incisions. TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine is pleased to offer arthroscopic surgery for the elbow.

What is Elbow Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopic surgery of the elbow (or elbow scope) is a minimally invasive surgical technique which allows the surgeon to access, explore, and operate on the elbow joint through very small incisions. The use of an arthroscope (a small instrument containing a lens and fiber optic lighting system) connected to a camera allows the surgeon to see a magnified and enhanced view of the interior of the joint on a television screen, often negating the need for a larger incision (open surgery).

What Elbow Conditions Can Be Treated Arthroscopically?

Elbow arthroscopy can be used to determine the cause of elbow pain (diagnostic arthroscopy), but many elbow conditions and injuries can also be treated arthroscopically, including:

  • Loose Bodies in the Elbow
  • Bone Spurs
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
  • Elbow Joint Contractures
  • Osteoarthritis of the Elbow
  • Inflammatory Arthritis (Rheumatoid Arthritis)
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans
  • Elbow Fractures
  • Sepsis

Please note: arthroscopic surgery can also be used in combination with open surgery for some procedures

Why Arthroscopy

Compared to open surgery (where the surgeon makes a larger incision to access the joint), arthroscopic surgery offers several benefits:

Reduced Pain
Reduce Cost
Faster Recovery
Improved Visualization
