Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel release surgery is the surgery to correct the cubital tunnel syndrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome, also called ulnar nerve entrapment is a condition caused by compression of the ulnar nerve in an area of the elbow called the cubital tunnel. The ulnar nerve travels down the back of the elbow behind the bony bump called the medial epicondyle and through a passageway called the cubital tunnel.

Biceps Tendon Repair

The biceps muscle, located in the front of the upper arm allows you to bend the elbow and rotate the arm. Biceps tendons attach the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder and in the elbow.

Biceps tear can be complete or partial. Partial biceps tendon tears will not completely break the tendon. Complete tendon tears will break the tendon into two parts.

Elbow Reconstruction

The elbow is a hinge joint made up of 3 bones – the humerus, the radius and the ulna. The bones are held together by ligaments which provide stability to the joint. Muscles and tendons help in movements of the joint and in performing various activities. A deformity involving any of these structural components may result in instability or limitation of functional movement at the joint; this may require a surgical reconstruction to restore the normal function and stability of the elbow joint.
