NYC Elbow Specialist

Your elbow is integral to everyday life – it’s hard to do much without it! Living with elbow pain can be frustrating, but more than that, it can be extremely limiting and at times, excruciating. Whether you’ve recently suffered an elbow injury or have been living with any level of pain, it’s time to see an elbow specialist. 

The elbow is a complex joint. The joint itself is comprised of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid and the joint needs the surrounding muscles and tendons to move. If you suffer an injury to any of the components of the elbow or the surrounding structures, you’re going to have elbow trouble. The elbow is also one of the most used joints in the body – something you may not notice until you’re feeling pain every time you move it!

There are a variety of injuries and conditions that can affect your elbow. Sports injuries and general overuse can result in conditions like Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Tendonitis, or Elbow Instability. Other possible injuries and conditions include an Elbow Strain, Elbow Bursitis, Elbow Fracture, Medial Collateral Ligament injuries, and more.

Our practice boasts some of New York’s Top Doctors in their respective fields, and that includes the upper extremity! If you’ve been living with elbow pain or recently suffered an injury, it’s time to make an appointment with an elbow specialist.
