Your elbow is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and it is the origin of the muscles that move your wrist and forearm. Overuse, trauma, and congenital defects can alter the mechanics of your elbow causing instability and pain. In some of these instances, elbow reconstruction surgery may be recommended to regain function and relieve pain. Elbow reconstruction is typically an outpatient surgery. After surgery, you may need to wear a brace or sling to immobilize the area. Physical therapy and pain management will also be considered as part of your personalized recovery plan.
