Elbow Arthroscopy

At Surgical Solutions Network, our board-certified orthopedic specialists can determine the cause of elbow pain using a minimally invasive surgical procedure called elbow arthroscopy. Patients from Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; Winnipeg, Manitoba; and across Canada are eligible for the procedure, which uses an arthroscope—a tiny camera—to see directly into the joint and surrounding area and correct many elbow problems. This technique enables the surgeon to accurately assess the problem and decide on the best treatment option.

What Are the Reasons for Elbow Arthroscopy?

Elbow arthroscopy may be recommended to correct these elbow problems:

  • Loose cartilage or bone fragments
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Fractures
  • Elbow instability
  • Loss of function
  • Infection in the elbow

In some cases, patients may need to have elbow replacement surgery to correct the problem.

What Are the Benefits of Elbow Arthroscopy?

Elbow arthroscopy can restore function and eliminate pain in the elbow. While each patient is different, arthroscopy typically allows for a shorter recovery period than more invasive surgical techniques.

What Happens During Elbow Arthroscopy?

Patients may need to follow specific advice on what to do before elbow arthroscopy. The procedure typically requires general anesthesia, which means the patient is asleep for the duration of the procedure.

The surgeon first makes a small incision or incisions in the elbow area large enough to insert small instruments, including a camera to guide the surgery. We can then treat the elbow pain using small surgical instruments in addition to the arthroscope.

How Long Is Recovery From Elbow Arthroscopy?

After surgery, the patient is taken to a recovery room to be monitored to ensure there are no complications. The procedure does not typically require an overnight stay, and patients must have an adult friend or loved one drive them home. You will be provided with detailed aftercare instructions.
