An elbow injury can bring down a seasoned sports star just as quickly as a parent picking up a bag of groceries.

Fractures, dislocations, torn tendons and overuse problems like “tennis elbow” are painful and stressful – no matter which shoes you’re standing in when it happens. The Virginia Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists have the time tested experience, top technologies and state of the art equipment to address the wide range of elbow injuries common the Hampton Roads community.

We focus on unique treatment plans, and always take the most conservative approach first. In many cases, patients respond well to rest, medicines where appropriate, compression braces, physical therapy through our partners at Bon Secours In Motion and a change in athletic equipment.

If surgery is necessary, the physicians the Virginia Orthopaedic and Spine Specialists are highly trained in the latest arthroscopic techniques. We specialize in the latest minimally invasive procedures that help ensure rapid healing, fast recovery, and early return to activity and sport. From a cosmetic standpoint, arthroscopic elbow surgery also results in minimal scarring.
