Our specialty-trained, board-certified elbow doctors at our Hand & Upper Extremity Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of elbow injuries and conditions.
There are several sports and hobbies that require frequent and repetitive movements that often leave patients with pain or discomfort within or around the elbow joint, such as tennis elbow. Treatments for elbow pain can vary, from conservative nonsurgical treatment to minimally invasive elbow surgery.
Patients who suffer from elbow pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedist, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body. Orthopedists who undergo additional specialized training for the elbow through a fellowship are often referred to as elbow specialists.
If you're suffering from an elbow injury or condition, it may be time to visit an elbow doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
