Elbow Surgery - Joint Replacement Center
The elbow joint is a hinged joint where the upper arm bone (humerus) meets the two forearm bones (ulna and radius). The main stabilizing structure of the elbow joint is the ligament along the inner aspect of the elbow (medial collateral ligament.) The unique anatomy of the elbow joint allows it to pass through a broad range of motion.
A common problem of the elbow associated with sporting activity is the development of painful bone spurs, tendonitis, loose bodies, cartilage defects and later osteoarthritis and stiffness.
If you are suffering from elbow pain, reach out to our San Francisco-based elbow surgeons. Our team of orthopedic surgeons will help devise the best treatment plan for you. No two elbows are alike (even on the same person), and a consultation with one of the CPMC's top elbow surgeons is your first step towards treating your elbow, whether or not ultimately through elbow surgery.
