What Is an Elbow Replacement?

Elbow replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing damaged portions of the elbow and replacing the bony surfaces with artificial prosthetic implants. The surgery repositions the elbow into proper alignment and replicates the original function, allowing for a near-normal range of motion for the patient. 

When Do You Need an Elbow Replacement?

Your doctor may recommend an elbow replacement for these elbow problems:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures of one of the bones of the elbow that have not healed properly
  • Elbow instability
  • Loss of function

Elbow replacement is indicated when other procedures, such as elbow arthroscopy and Tommy John surgery cannot correct your condition.

What Happens During Elbow Replacement Surgery?

Our surgeons perform total and partial elbow replacements depending on the patient’s specific situation. In addition, there are linked and unlinked elbow replacements performed. Your surgeon will be able to discuss the recommended technique and prosthetic to suit your needs. During a consultation, we will review the procedure, including the risks, benefits, recovery, and life after the procedure.

What Is Recovery From Elbow Replacement Like?

It is important to remember that, whether partial or total, elbow replacement is still major surgery. Please keep in mind that there will always be post-operative pain and swelling. It is important to remember that everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic, but in our experience, the techniques and protocols used by our surgeons and anaesthetists allow for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your old self.

What Can I Expect After an Elbow Replacement?

After surgery, the patient is taken to a recovery room to be monitored for complications. The procedure does not typically require an overnight stay. A patient must be driven home by a responsible adult. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on what is necessary for a smooth recovery. You will return to the centre for follow-up visits as necessary and will be prescribed physiotherapy to maximize function and optimize recovery.
