Robert Unsell, MD | Hand, Wrist, Bicep and Elbow Surgery

Elbow Tendon & Bone Injuries

The elbow joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the elbow joint move. When any of these structures is hurt or diseased, you have elbow problems.

Many things can make your elbow hurt. A common cause is tendinitis, an inflammation or injury to the tendons that attach muscle to bone. Tendinitis of the elbow is a sports injury, often from playing tennis or golf. You may also get tendinitis from overuse of the elbow. Other causes of elbow pain include sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, bursitis and arthritis. Treatment depends on the cause.

Dr. Unsell and his team can provide complete care for your elbow injury through surgical and non-surgical treatments.
