Radial Head Arthroplasty


A Radial Head Arthroplasty is performed on patients suffering from elbow pain and disability due to a radial head fracture to restore function. The radial “head” is the knobby end of the radius, where it meets the elbow. During this procedure, when the damage is too severe for repair, the entire radial head is removed and replaced with an artificial radial head.


What It Treats
