Elbow Arthroscopy

Elbow Arthroscopy

The operation is done by key hole surgery; usually through two or three 5mm punter wounds. It involves examination of the elbow joint using tiny telescope with television camera introduced through key hole. Key hole surgery in the elbow is helpful for:

  • Removing loose bodies within joint seen with arthritis, osteochondral injuries or rarely in a disease called synovial osteochondromatosis.
  • It is also used to relieve stiff elbows.
  • In debridement and synovectomy in arthritic elbows.
  • In testing pain from tendonitis of the extensor muscles (commonly know as Tennis Elbow)
