Comprehensive Elbow Replacement Surgery in Hyderabad

Elbow Replacement Surgery

Elbow replacement surgery (sometimes referred to as total elbow arthroplasty) is an operation that surgeons use to relieve pain and restore motion to a damaged elbow.

Reasons for Surgery

  • Severe pain and stiffness:When conservative treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, and injections, fail to provide adequate pain relief and improve movement limitations.
  • Advanced arthritis:Degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis cause significant damage to the elbow joint surfaces.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis:Arthritis that develops after a severe elbow fracture or injury.
  • Elbow deformities:Deformed elbows that significantly affect function and cause pain.
  • Failed previous elbow surgery:When previous procedures haven’t provided satisfactory outcomes.

Conditions Treated

End-stage osteoarthritis

Severe degeneration of the elbow joint cartilage.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Inflammation and damage to the elbow joint lining.

Post-traumatic arthritis

Arthritis caused by a previous elbow injury.

Ununited elbow fractures

Fractures that haven’t healed properly after months of treatment.

Elbow deformities

Severe deformities impacting function and causing pain.

Types of Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA)

Replaces all three articulating surfaces of the elbow joint with artificial components.

Partial elbow replacement (PER)

Replaces only the damaged portion of the ulna, leaving the other two surfaces intact.

The Surgery Process

  • Pre-operative planning: We will discuss your medical history, symptoms, and expectations, and determine if arthroscopic shoulder surgery is the right option for you.
  • Anaesthesia: You will receive general or regional anaesthesia to keep you pain-free during the surgery.
  • Surgery: The surgeon makes small incisions and inserts the arthroscope and instruments to visualise and address the underlying issue and Implants the artificial components (prosthesis)
  • Closure: The incisions are closed with stitches or staples.


  • Sling immobilization: Your arm will be immobilized in a sling for several weeks to protect the healing tissues.
  • Pain management: Medication will be prescribed to manage pain and discomfort.
  • Physical therapy: Gradual exercises will be started to regain strength, motion, and stability in the shoulder joint.
  • Follow-up visits : Regular checkups with your doctor will monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.


  • Improved stability: The surgery helps to restore stability to the shoulder joint, preventing future dislocations or subluxations.
  • Reduced pain: By addressing the source of pain, the surgery can significantly improve shoulder pain and discomfort.
  • Increased function: Regaining strength and motion in the shoulder allows you to return to your daily activities and sports.
  • Improved quality of life: Reduced pain and improved function can significantly enhance your overall quality of life.
  • Improved shoulder function: Enhanced range of motion, improved strength, and reduced pain lead to better function and quality of life.
