Elbow arthritis is an inflammatory condition that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and interference with the use of the arm.Arthritis can affect all ages but is most commonly seen in people aged over 40 years. The most common cause is wear and tear. Apart from that, traumatic injuries, fractures, and dislocations make you more susceptible to arthritis.
Total Elbow Replacement
Elbow joint replacement, also referred to as total elbow arthroplasty, is an operative procedure to treat the symptoms of arthritis that have not responded to non-surgical treatments. The goal of elbow joint replacement surgery is to eliminate your pain and increase the mobility of your elbow joint.Elbow joint replacement surgery may be recommended by your surgeon for the treatment of severe arthritis that has not responded to conservative treatment options.
Revision Elbow Replacement
Revision elbow replacement is a surgery performed to replace a loose or worn out initial elbow replacement. Typically, cemented semi-constrained prostheses are used for revision elbow replacement.The procedure, also called ‘revision elbow arthroplasty’, can often be more complicated than the original replacement surgery.
