Elbow

The elbow is the hinged joint that connects the bone in the upper arm (humerus) to the two smaller bones of the forearm (radius and ulna). Muscles and ligaments attached to these bones help the arm flex, extend and turn. But when disease or injury affects any of these structures, the result of even slight movement can be searing pain.

Advances in orthopedic medicine mean help is available, including these treatments:

  • Elbow joint replacement
  • Care for "Tennis Elbow"
