Elbow Replacement Surgery at DRHC Dubai

Elbow replacement surgery is a specialized procedure performed to alleviate pain and restore function in individuals suffering from elbow joint damage due to arthritis, injury, or other conditions. At DRHC Dubai, we have a team of highly skilled orthopedic surgeons who specialize in elbow replacement surgeries.

Elbow replacement surgery involves replacing a damaged, worn, or diseased elbow with an artificial joint. The procedure aims to restore the normal functioning of the elbow, enabling patients to perform their daily activities without pain or discomfort.

When is Elbow Replacement Surgery Needed?

Elbow replacement surgery is typically recommended for patients experiencing severe elbow pain that interferes significantly with their daily activities and is not relieved by non-surgical treatments. Conditions that might necessitate elbow replacement surgery include:

  • Osteoarthritis of the elbow
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Severe fractures
  • Tumors

The Procedure

During elbow replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the humerus (the upper arm bone) and the ulna (the forearm bone) are replaced with an artificial elbow joint made from two implants that attach to the bones in your arm. A metal and plastic hinge joins the implants together.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Post-surgery, patients may need to wear a splint for a few weeks to protect the elbow. Physical therapy is a crucial part of the recovery process, helping to strengthen the arm and restore flexibility. Most patients can resume normal activities within 3 to 6 months after surgery.
