Elbow Contracture Release

Surgical removal of soft tissue or loose bodies that block motion and cause pain at the elbow.

Elbow contracture release

When an elbow contracture cannot be treated conservatively, surgical management may be indicated for a patient to regain motion and function of the elbow. This can be done through an open or arthroscopic approach. In either case, it involves removing soft tissue, synovitis and possibly loose bony fragments that may be blocking motion and causing pain. Physical therapy and bracing are a crucial part of the recovery process and generally begin immediately after surgery to retain the motion that was gained from the surgery.
