Elbow Fractures and Trauma
Severe elbow injuries can result in fractures, dislocation and trauma to soft tissues and nerves. Elbow fractures and trauma may require surgical treatment to repair bones and realign them in the elbow joint. Urgent intervention can be critical to improving the chance for full recovery from a severe elbow fracture or injury. For world-class, prompt orthopedic treatment for elbow fractures and trauma in NYC, you can trust the expert team at Jonathan Glashow, MD, Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine.
Sports injuries, falls and vehicle accidents are common causes of elbow fractures and trauma. While urgent care facilities can diagnose fractures, most are not equipped to provide orthopedic surgery for complex elbow fractures. The elbow contains three different bones and multiple ligaments, tendons, nerves and other tissue that must be carefully evaluated when a severe injury occurs. X-rays and other imaging or testing may be required to determine the extent of the trauma and the best treatment for recovery.
