Elbow arthroscopy, synovectomy, osteophyte resection

Other symptoms are often associated with ailments that pass for «tendinitis». Elbow pains can stem from either neighboring tendons or the joint itself.

Persistent swelling of the joint caused by arthritis (synovitis, inflammatory arthritis, arthrosis) may require, in addition to medication treatment, cleaning which can be performed using instruments and a camera the size of a pencil, inserted through tiny incisions in the elbow's skin (arthroscopy cleaning).

Using this same technique, we can also remove free bone fragments likely to cause blockage or adherences that limit elbow movement.
