Arthroscopy of the Elbow

What is an arthroscopy of the elbow?

Arthroscopy of the elbow allows your doctor to see inside your elbow joint using a camera that is inserted through small skin incisions around your elbow. Once your surgeon has examined and diagnosed your problem, they may treat it at the same time. 

Elbow arthroscopy can diagnose or treat elbow pain and problems including:

• Assessing cartilage loss or damage – due to injury or arthritis.
• Removal of loose bodies - fragments of bone or cartilage can break loose due to arthritis, excessive stress or injury and, cause pain, catching and locking of your elbow joint.
• Removal of bone spurs – bony projections can appear, often due to arthritis, that impede your normal joint movement.
• Elbow capsule release – the elbow capsule that surrounds your elbow joint can become thickened due to injury, surgery, or other trauma and cause stiffness and restricted movement.
• Tennis elbow treatment - the unhealthy portion of the tendon in tennis elbow is cut away.
• Removal of adhesions – scar tissue from a previous elbow injury, such as a fracture blocks motion.
• Release of contractures – abnormal muscle and tendon contraction limits your range of motion.
