When Elbow Surgery Is Necessary


Have you ever experienced elbow pain that won’t go away? If so, you might be wondering if surgery is necessary. After all, surgery is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Here at Central Florida Bone & Joint Institute, we are here to help you make the best decision for your health and well-being. Let’s take a look at when elbow surgery is necessary and how you can get started with the right treatment plan.

Signs You Need Elbow Surgery

There are some common signs that indicate it may be time to consider elbow surgery. These include:

  • Persistent pain or swelling in the elbow even after rest and over-the-counter medications
  • Limited range of motion in the elbow area
  • Inability to lift objects because of instability or weakness in the shoulder joint
  • Loss of sensation or reduced feeling in the hands due to nerve compression caused by an injury or condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you have any of these symptoms, speak with your doctor about undergoing an evaluation to determine if elbow surgery is necessary.
