How do I Know If I Need Elbow Surgery?

Elbow surgery may be necessary for various reasons, depending on the specific condition or injury you're experiencing. Our elbow specialists will work with you to create a dedicated treatment plan that works best for your lifestyle. For many, elbow surgery is a last resort after more conservative treatments haven't worked. Some common reasons for elbow surgery include:

Your orthopedic specialist will evaluate your circumstances and symptoms and recommend surgery if other treatments have failed.

Bluegrass Orthopaedics treats patients of all ages, from active children to experienced adults. We have the expertise to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs, regardless of whether you're a young athlete or recovering from an injury later in life. For one of many of our success stories, check out our "Comeback Champions."

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Elbow Surgery?

Your orthopedic surgeon will explain your procedure and what's required during recovery. Recovery time can range from weeks to months, depending on the type of surgery, overall health, and extent of the injury. Arthroscopic elbow surgery or simple tendon repairs may take 4 to 6 weeks to recover, while elbow fracture repair, ligament reconstruction, or elbow replacement surgery may take 3 to 6 months or more. Follow doctor instructions and attend appointments and physical therapy sessions to ensure successful recovery.

How Should I Prepare for Elbow Surgery?

Our patients must have all the necessary information for a successful surgical recovery. Your surgeon and medical team are there to provide you with educational materials and answer any questions. Be sure to follow the medical and lifestyle guidelines your Bluegrass Orthopaedic surgeon provides for a smooth recovery. For instance, avoid smoking or any activities that could worsen your condition or hinder the healing process. It is essential to maintain open communication with your healthcare team leading up to the surgery. Please contact your surgeon or other medical team members for clarification or guidance if you have any concerns or questions.

Comeback Champion:
Sydney Parker

BGO's Champion patient comes from London, KY - Ms. Sydney Parker. Sydney is an animal lover, and was injured after a fall from her horse in October of 2018. She fractured and dislocated her elbow, which unfortunately led to surgery in October of 2018 - a complicated procedure that required an open reduction internal fixation as well as an ulnar nerve decompression and transposition. Sydney had fractured her trochlea, lateral condyle of her elbow, as well as her olecranon.

I was very pleased with the care received by Dr. Christensen and his staff. He had been highly recommended to me for several years by many people, including another orthopedist in another practice.

Had a new problem with my neck and after x-rays I was offered an injection in the problem area. Today I feel much better. Dr Lockstadt is very receptive to his patients.

Can not imagine anyone having a bad experience with him or his staff. Third time dealing with him in last 1 1/2 years, last time he joked with us that we could just stop by and say hello , didn't have to go to such extremes. Very knowledgeable and just as nice.

Excellent experience. I’m not quite 2 months out of a revision on my left knee (2nd revision following botched surgeries by 2 Louisville orthopedists).

I’m not quite 2 months out of a revision on my left knee (2nd revision following botched surgeries by 2 Louisville orthopedists). I can’t say enough good things about how good Dr. Denehy is. He listens and is very concerned with the patients wellbeing. After having 2 other surgeons mess up my knee, I’m very appreciative that Dr. Denehy fixed their mistakes.

I had the carpal tunnel surgery 8-26 on my right hand with 3 finger tendon releases. Everything went smoothly, so about 10 weeks later I had the left hand done, and was happy with the outcome.
