UCL and RCL Repair

This involves making an incision over the disrupted ligament and repairing the native tissue.

UCL and RCL Repair

If a collateral ligament fails to heal with conservative management or is significantly displaced (i.e. Stener lesion) surgical intervention may be necessary. This involves making an incision over the disrupted ligament and repairing the native tissue when able or reconstructing the ligament with a tendon autograft if a primary repair is not possible. A primary repair will often involve the use of a small suture anchor in the bone to ensure a solid repair. The patient will need to be immobilized over the next 4-6 weeks to ensure that the ligament heals properly. After that point the patient will begin therapy to regain motion and strength. A therapist may make you a custom removable brace that you can wear at times for rest and comfort.
