Elbow Orthopedic Care
The value of the elbows for free limb movement is often underestimated until an injury or disease impacts mobility. The elbows are integral in most of the important functions performed using the arms. Writing, lifting and the operation of machinery is often dependent on healthy and flexible elbows.
Even mild elbow pain can make arm movement difficult. Inflammation in and around the elbow joint is uncomfortable and painful. You may be suffering from an acute condition that has come on suddenly or a chronic condition that has progressed over time. Injury to the elbow can also cause pain and swelling. Whatever the case, you should seek elbow orthopedic care from a specialist in California.

Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can provide an expert diagnosis for patients experiencing elbow pain or inflammation. Our team may recommend conservative measures to relieve pain and discomfort in acute cases caused by minor injuries. Elbow surgeries can range from minimally invasive procedures to complex surgery to repair serious damage to the elbow.
Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds are firmly committed to joint preservation whenever possible. Joint replacement surgeries should be reserved for extreme cases where the joint has been completely compromised.
