  • Elbow

    • Olecranon Fractures - The olcecranon is made up of the bones in the elbow, also reffered to as the "funny bone". An olceranon fracture can occur indirectly, by landing on an outstretched arm, or resulting from a direct fall onto a flexed elbow. The fracture can be treated either surgically or nonsurgically depending on the type of fracture and its severity.

    • Lateral Epicondlytis (tennis elbow)  - Tennis elbow is the inflammation, soreness, or pain on the outside or lateral side of the upper arm near the elbow. This injury is more common for individuals who play a lot of tennis or other racquet sports.

    • Medial Epicondlytis (gofler's elbow) - Golfer's elbow occurs with pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow through the tendons and muscles. The pain can spread to the forearm and wrist.

    • Radial Head Fractures - A radial head fracture is the most common elbow fracture in adults. This type of fracture can cause pain and swelling around the elbow and can affect all movements of the elbow.

  • Forearm & Wrist

    • Colles' Fractures  - A colles' (wrist) fracture, is a break across the end of the main bone of the forearm and causes the wrist to become extended or shortened.

    • Distal Radius Fractures - A distal radius fracture, also known as "Smith's fractures," is a type of wrist fracture where treatment is typically immobilization, and very rarely surgery.

    • Elbow Arthroscopy - An elbow arthroscopy is a minimally-invasive procedure performed to diagnose or treat conditions affecting the elbow joint. The procedure involves a tiny camera and small incisions.

    • Radial Shaft Fractures - Also called Galeazzi fractures, a radial shaft fracture is an isolated fracture with an associated disloaction in the forearm.

    • Ulnar Shaft Fractures - Ulnar shaft fractures are caused by direct trauma, typically from using the arm to protect from assault. The ulnar shaft fracture is also called a "nightstick fracture."
