Elbow Surgery at Tampa General Hospital
Though non-surgical strategies are typically attempted first, many patients who suffer from elbow conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and fractures will elect to have elbow surgery to alleviate their symptoms. Surgical options provide patients with a way to restore function to their elbow and improve their quality of life by allowing them to resume everyday activities without dealing with severe discomfort and the worry that they are further aggravating their elbow condition.
At Tampa General Hospital, we perform elbow surgery and surgical procedures on other joints as well, including the knee and hip. Our orthopedics team has extensive surgical experience; in fact, in 2014 alone, we performed more than 1,300 joint replacement procedures. We are considered a leader in orthopedic care because:
- We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach, providing our patients with the services of experienced physicians, surgeons, social workers, care coordinators, and other professionals.
- TGH’s Joint Center has a space dedicated to providing post-surgery physical therapy to help expedite patient recovery from elbow surgery.
- Our commitment to providing and continually delivering outstanding orthopedic care is evidenced by the fact that we have been recognized by U.S.News & World Report as a high performing hospital for Orthopedics. Plus, our orthopedic trauma program maintains a prestigious Gold Seal Certification from The Joint Commission.
