Pain in any of your joints can be difficult to endure, especially when it is in the complicated elbow joint. Elbow bursitis is painful orthopedic condition that occurs when the small, fluid-filled sac (bursa) between your elbow and muscles, tendons, and skin becomes inflamed.
If you experience constant elbow pain from bursitis, a Dignity Health Central California doctor may recommend elbow surgery to help you return to doing the things you love.
Find a Doctor today for exceptional care and personalized treatment for elbow bursitis surgery in Central California.
Golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow are two common, but different, types of bursitis in the elbow. Both cause pain and limit your ability to enjoy these sports and other activities.
If medication and other noninvasive treatments haven’t eased your symptoms, your doctor may recommend elbow surgery for bursitis. During this procedure, your orthopedic surgeon removes the inflamed bursa in your elbow. In addition to restoring your ability to enjoy daily activities, this surgery relieves symptoms of persistent bursitis, including joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, swelling, and warmth.
After surgery, you can look forward to a generally short recovery with full use of your elbow in about three to four weeks.
