Elbow Arthroscopy Procedure in Houston, TX

Before the surgical procedure, our orthopedic surgeon will evaluate your medical history and may run a few tests to ensure that you are fit for this surgery.

We usually perform this technique under general anesthesia. You will be positioned for the surgery so we can easily access your elbow joint.

Our surgeon will fill the affected joint with fluid to see the surrounding structures more clearly. Small incisions will be made to insert an arthroscope (a tiny camera) and other instruments inside the elbow joint. If you are undergoing this procedure for diagnosis, we will take a sample for a biopsy test.

If you are having elbow arthroscopy for the treatment of a medical condition or injury, our surgeon will address the damaged parts. We will then close the incisions with sutures or staples and place a dressing or splint to protect the area.

Recovery After The Procedure

In most cases, you will be able to go home a few hours after the surgery. Our team will provide complete instructions to help you achieve a painless recovery. Rest well for a few days and avoid using your treated arm to perform any strenuous activities.

We will recommend some gentle exercises as part of the rehabilitation program to prevent joint stiffness and improve your range of motion.

Patient Reviews

If this surgery is a little frightening, I understand. I interviewed doctors until I was satisfied that the one I chose was right for me. The pain and restriction of movement in my left shoulder was debilitating. Dr. Michael Cusick is totally committed to his trade. Complete total reverse shoulder replacement.

Kyle Powell

Don't get me wrong there was hiccups and waiting to have surgery seemed like forever but Dr. Cusick, his office staff and the hospital staff especially has been amazing. They went above and beyond to get my surgery approved so we wouldn't have to put it off longer. Dr. Cusick keeps a positive outlook even at times...

Kathy Zenker
