Elbow

Pain in your elbow can be caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and soft tissue injuries.

There are a number of different procedures that can be carried out to deal with painful elbow conditions, many through keyhole surgery. Elbow surgery is undertaken at our York and Bridlington sites.

If you damage your elbow in an accident and require emergency surgery to your elbow, this will take place in our trauma centres at York and Scarborough.
