What is elbow replacement surgery?

Upper arm bone (humerus) and the ulna and the radius (the two bones that make up the forearm) come together and form elbow joint. The elbow has several moving parts that balance each other to control the movements of the forearm. It can be damaged due to many possibilities like injuries, fractures, arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Elbow replacements ease the pain caused by degraded cartilage and bone-on-bone contact, providing a wider range of movement and a higher quality of life.

• Any patients with elbow problems with significant degrees of pain resulting from their condition who have considered other treatment options without positive results.

The surgeon takes a medical history and asks for imaging tests such as MRI, X-ray and CT scan. Patients should avoid eating solid foods eight hours before the procedure. Smoking should be stopped few weeks before and after the surgery. Smoking will slow down the healing process. Patients should stop taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines and herbal supplements before the surgery, since these medicines increase the risk of bleeding.
