The hand and wrist work together seamlessly with the help from dozens of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. All of them perform multiple complex positions hundreds of times a day, which creates a need for highly advance medical care to treat injuries. Like the knee, the elbow is also a hinge joint. It connects the humerus bone with the radius and ulna bones of the lower arm. The elbow is built of many complex muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The build of the elbow is more a simple hinge joint; it allows proper rotation using unique arrangement of tissues.
Specialized knowledge and expertise is required to properly treat injuries and diseases of the elbow. Advanced Orthopaedic Center physicians have taken time to understand and specialize in cutting-edge elbow treatments and surgeries.
