Elbow Surgery

Elbow disorders are less common than those of the shoulder. However, if they are not treated well, they can lead to significant disabilities, as it is the elbow that allows us to touch our face/body with our hand. 

Elbow injuries can affect bones, tendons or ligaments, be traumatic (accident) or degenerative (wear and tear).
