Elbow Program | Tampa General Hospital

Tampa General Hospital’s Orthopaedic Institute is a leading destination for patients who are seeking surgical elbow pain treatment or joint replacement revision surgery. We are a high-volume surgical center that performs more than 4,000 inpatient orthopaedic surgical procedures annually, which is more surgeries than any other facility within West Central Florida. Due to the complex nature of the elbow joint, it is highly susceptible to a wide range of injuries and age-related conditions that may require elbow surgery to correct it.

Our team of surgeons and medical professionals has vast expertise and extensive, yearlong fellowship training, uses state-of-the-art technology, and continues to perform scientific and clinical research, putting us at the forefront of orthopaedic surgery. But we are more than just a surgical center. TGH's Orthopaedic Institute is a comprehensive orthopaedic care facility where you will receive everything from financial guidance to post-surgery physical therapy.

Conservative Treatment Options for Elbow Pain

Most elbow disorders require only conservative treatment. The following non-surgical options may help to alleviate your symptoms:

  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Elbow padding, bracing or immobilization
  • Rest
