Arthroscopic Elbow Surgery

Arthroscopic elbow surgery is used to diagnose and treat a number of elbow joint conditions.

With the arthroscopic approach, small incisions are made that allow the doctor to insert a high-powered fiber optic camera and surgical instruments into the elbow area. As the doctor watches a monitor linked to the camera, he or she can address the specific needs inside the elbow joint.

Common arthroscopic procedures include removal of loose bodies; release of scar tissue; and treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Advantages of elbow arthroscopy include minimal scarring, reduced pain and bleeding and lower chance of infection than open surgery.
