Orthopedic Specialties: Elbow

Elbow Anatomy

Elbow Anatomy

The elbow is a complex hinge joint that connects three long bones: the humerus, the radius, and the ulna, surrounded by ligaments that help maintain stability and resist stress. Because so many muscles meet near the elbow, it is susceptible to injuries and ailments that cause pain and restrict movement. Our elbow specialists provide a range of treatment options designed to reduce pain, restore mobility, and get you back to your life.

Our Approach

We believe in care that is as versatile as the elbow joint itself. Our specialists employ a comprehensive, individualized approach to each patient’s care plan, with consideration for your symptoms, diagnosis, and lifestyle. For many elbow conditions we recommend minimally invasive measures such as physical therapy, braces and splints, and steroid injections. If your symptoms don’t respond or you require additional treatment, we will work with you to help you make informed decisions about surgical intervention. Through this conservative, patient-centered approach, we never lose sight of our primary goal: restoring the mobility you need to return to what matters most.

Leadership in Innovation

We believe the marriage of technology and medicine leads to safer, more effective treatment for healthier, happier patients. As a leader in emerging orthopedic technology, Ortho Rhode Island is pioneering state-of-the-art orthopedic tools and techniques:
