There are three main bones that make up the elbow’s hinge joint: the lower end of the upper arm bone (humerus) connected to the upper end of the lower arm’s bones (radius and ulna). Several ligaments hold these bones together, while articular cartilage covers the elbow joint to facilitate better movement.
All these structures work together to keep the elbow strong and stable while providing maximum flexibility and mobility. However, specific injuries and conditions can compromise the elbow joint’s function.
Fortunately, there are a number of procedures available to treat and manage these kinds of diseases. One such example is an elbow replacement surgery or elbow arthroplasty. Read on below to get accurate answers to your burning questions before you undergo such a procedure.
