Elbow Injuries

Sports injuries, falls and overuse are some of the common causes of elbow pain. The elbow consists of three bones, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Injuries to any of these areas can be complicated. That's why Gundersen Health System has an orthopaedic surgeon specialized in elbow surgery to treat complex elbow injuries.

The most common elbow injuries treated at Gundersen include:

  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tennis or golfers elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Sprains and strains

Whenever possible, our orthopaedics team will treat elbow injuries with conservative treatments such as:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Activity modification
  • Steroid or cortisone injection
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Bracing

If these treatments don’t work, an orthopaedic surgeon may discuss surgery options with you. Gundersen has state-of-the-art surgical options, including total elbow joint replacement.

Every injury is different so there is no one size fits all treatment. We'll work with you to find the best treatment options. For more information or to schedule an appointment, find a Gundersen orthopaedics location near you.
