Surgical Elbow Pain Treatment at Tampa General Hospital
There are numerous elbow pain treatment options available to patients who are dealing with severe discomfort and symptoms such as swelling and stiffness of the elbow. For example, some non-surgical options that may result in alleviated symptoms include medication, physical therapy, and rest. However, due to the complex nature of the elbow joint, a system of intricately connected bones, cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, it is highly susceptible to a wide range of injuries and age-related conditions that may require surgery to correct.
Tampa General Hospital is a leading destination for patients seeking surgical elbow pain treatment. We are a high-volume surgical center that performed more than 1,300 joint replacement surgeries in 2014 alone, so our team has vast experience performing elbow surgeries.
