An Elbow Arthroscopy is a surgical technique that can diagnose and treat problems in the elbow. During this procedure, your surgeon will make a very small incision and insert a tiny camera – called an arthroscope – into the back of your elbow, allowing them to see the inside of the joint. Your surgeon can then investigate any problems with the elbow, and, if necessary, correct the issue using small instruments guided by the arthroscope.
What It Treats
Elbow Arthroscopy can be done to remove loose pieces of bone and cartilage or release scar tissue, thus relieving painful symptoms of problems that damage the cartilage surfaces and other soft tissues surrounding the joint, and can help surgeons diagnose more serious conditions of the elbow.Schedule an Appointment
