Elbow Arthroscopy - Dubai Elbow Clinic

A Perfect Solution for Treating Multiple Elbow-Related Issues

  • Elbow arthroscopy is a procedure that is used by orthopedic surgeons to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems within the elbow joint.
  • The word arthroscopy means to insert a tiny camera inside the joint and inspect the problem.
  • The procedure has significantly enhanced the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of elbow-related problems with minimum downtime. It has also made the process of recovery after any type of elbow surgery relatively faster and simpler.

About the Procedure

  • The elbow arthroscopy is performed by inserting a small camera into the elbow joint via a 5mm incision in the area around the elbow joint.
  • These incisions will allow the 2.7 mm thin arthroscope to insert easily into the joint, without causing pain or joint stiffness to the patients.
  • The surgeons will make other incisions to use instruments in the joint to carry out the required surgical procedure.

Different types of Elbow Arthroscopy

As mentioned before, elbow arthroscopy can be used to treat a variety of elbow ailments. The most common of these include the following:

  • Tennis elbow, with the help of lateral epicondylitis
  • Removing loose cartilage and bone fragments that might have resulted from an injury or disease
  • Release scar tissue for improving the overall range of motion
  • Treatment of Osteoarthritis which is caused mostly by age-related wear and tear
  • Treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis also known commonly as inflammatory arthritis

Treatment of Osteochondritis dissecans which is mostly to the capitulum (end of the humerus) and is commonly observed in throwers or gymnasts
