The elbow is a common site for sporting injuries as well as fractures. These fractures are often challenging to put back together.
Our aim is to securely fix them so as to mobilize the elbow fast enough before stiffness sets in. Sometimes, in the older population, these fractures are not fixable and we end up replacing part or the whole joint to restore early motion.
Although ligament injuries and dislocations are relatively uncommon, these are complex injuries to treat.
The rehabilitation process is an important factor in successful recovery.
