The Arm and Elbow

Whether you enjoy working in your garden or hugging a loved one, an arm injury can interfere with some of your most cherished activities. Arm injuries involve a range of orthopedic conditions from broken bones to tennis elbow to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Your Dignity Health surgeon can diagnose your arm injury or condition and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.

If you have arm pain, one of these common arm conditions and injuries may be the cause: 

  • biceps tendon injury or strain
  • broken arm and fracture
  • bursitis
  • hand and wrist conditions and injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • shoulder conditions and injuires
  • tennis elbow
  • triceps tendon injury or strain

Injuries and Treatment for the Elbow

Whether you've just bumped your "funny bone" or you have chronic pain, the elbow joint is easy to injure. Pain in the elbow can occur from overuse, a fall or blow to the joint, or a force that causes the elbow to bend backward.

We perform elbow surgery to relieve and repair the following:

  • bursitis
  • dislocation
  • fractures
  • hyperextension
  • sprains and strains
  • tendonitis

Your specific arm or elbow problem will determine your treatment plan. We specialize in the latest procedures, including minimally invasive surgery, and more. See the complete list of surgeries we perform.
