Fractures

Safe, Effective Treatment for Elbow Fractures

At EmergeOrtho, we’re committed to developing customized treatment plans to accommodate your fractured elbow. Our goal is for you to emerge stronger, ready to return to the activities of everyday living.

As one of the largest bones in your body, the elbow connects the bones of the forearm (radius and ulna) to the upper arm bone (humerus). They are connected through an extensive network of muscles and ligaments, which provide the elbow with a wide range of motion. However, because it is one of the most stressed joints, it’s also prone to fractures and other injuries.

If you have a complex intra-articular fracture, surgery is needed to put the pieces of your bone back into position. This may involve placing titanium screws to repair and hold your bones in place.

The elbow is a complicated joint, and this is why it is imperative to seek treatment from EmergeOrtho orthopedists who have the experience to provide the best treatment available. Our compassion, expertise and dedication have made us the provider of choice for patients across North Carolina.
