Elbow Replacement


Elbow replacement is surgery to replace the elbow joint with artificial joint parts (prosthetics).

The Elbow Joint Connects Three Bones:

The humerus in the upper arm
The ulna and radius in the lower arm (forearm)

The artificial elbow joint has two or three stems made of high-quality metal. A metal and plastic hinge joins the stems together and allows the artificial joint to bend. Artificial joints come in different sizes to fit people of different sizes.

You'll receive general anesthesia. This means you'll be asleep and unable to feel pain. Or you'll receive regional anesthesia (spinal and epidural) to numb your arm.
A cut (incision) is made on the back of your elbow so that the surgeon can view your elbow joint.
The damaged tissue and parts of the arm bones that make up the elbow joint are removed.
A drill is used to make a hole in the center of the arm bones.
The ends of the artificial joint are usually glued in place into each bone. They can be connected with a hinge.
The tissue around the new joint is repaired.
