Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Numerous conditions and injuries may cause immediate or long-term elbow joint damage. Limited range-of-motion is a common restriction that accompanies this elbow damage. A diseased elbow resulting from sports injuries, tumor, arthritis, and other conditions can cause severe pain, swelling, and may worsen to the point in which the arm becomes immobile. Elbow joint replacement, or elbow arthoplasty, is a surgical treatment option that involves replacing the damaged elbow with an artificial joint constructed out of high-quality metal stems and features a metal and plastic hinge to resemble the congenital joint. Patients with health conditions and/or past elbow injuries may find relief following this elbow replacement procedure. Surgeons at Florida Hospital are specialized in orthopedic services and can examine an elbow joint to determine if it needs elbow arthroplasty.
