About Total Elbow Replacements

What is it and how is it performed?

Total Elbow Replacement Overview

Total elbow replacement is a surgical treatment option for severe elbow arthritis that does not improve after nonsurgical treatment. Board-Certified and Fellowship-Trained Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) upper extremity specialists perform total elbow replacement surgery.

How is total elbow replacement performed?

Total elbow replacement is an inpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. After the patient is comfortably positioned and completely asleep, a CONA upper extremity specialist:

  • Carefully removes arthritic bone and cartilage
  • Bonds artificial joint components to bone

The new joint moves freely and easily and does not cause pain. Patients live symptom-free lives with minimal to no restrictions.

What does total elbow replacement surgery treat?

Total elbow replacement surgery treats severe elbow arthritis. Symptoms that dramatically improve after surgery include:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
