Tennis elbow replacement surgery: Tennis elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, is required in the case of patients with small tears of ligaments that attach the forearm muscles to the arm bone in the elbow joint. This is the most common procedure available in Iran for patients with an elbow joint pain. During the surgery, the damaged tendon area is located and an incision is made over the outer surface of the joint.
Elbow arthritis replacement surgery: Elbow arthritis surgery, also known as elbow debridement, is performed in patients with significant damage to the elbow due to arthritis. Back of the elbow is incised deep enough to remove all the bone spurs and loose debris that are causing a hindrance in the elbow movement.
Arthroscopic Elbow Replacement Surgery: In this procedure, small incisions are made over the elbow to insert the instruments with the help of a small camera. The incision is made so that the damaged part of the elbow joint can be replaced. This surgery is conducted to remove loose bodies, joint capsules, and bone spurs. In some cases, it is also used to review the cartilage damage.
