About Elbow Replacement

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Elbow Replacement Surgery 
Elbow replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that replaces the elbow joint bones with an artificial elbow joint. It is successful in relieving pain for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and elbow injuries. 

The Artificial Elbow 
The prosthetic elbow joint is composed of two parts:
  • The Humeral Component 
    The lower part of the humerus in the upper arm is replaced by the humeral component. It is anchored into the hollow interior of the humerus by a long stem.
  • The Ulnar Component 
    The upper part of the ulna in the lower arm is replaced by the ulnar component. It is anchored into the hollow interior of the ulna by a shorter metal stem.
A hinge connects the humeral and ulnar components that are made of plastic and metal. A cemented or un-cemented prosthesis is used to keep the artificial elbow in position. 

How is the Elbow Replacement Performed? 
  • A surgical incision is made on the patient’s arm to expose the elbow joint.
  • The injured tissue and bones of the elbow joint are removed.
  • A hole is drilled into the middle of the upper and lower arm bones.
  • The stem ends of the artificial elbow joints are put into both the bones.
  • A hinge is used to attach the two stems.
  • The incision is closed with stitches and covered with a bandage.
  • A splint may be used to keep the arm stable.

How to Prepare for the Elbow Replacement? 
  • The patient needs to undergo a physical checkup.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient is taking with or without a prescription. These may include supplements or herbs or drugs.
  • Certain medication that the patient is taking may be stopped two weeks before the surgery.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has any ailments or medical conditions.
  • The doctor should be informed if the patient has been drinking more than 2 drinks of alcohol per day.
  • The patient may be required to meet the physical or occupational therapist to learn some exercises before the surgery.
