Elbow arthritis

Osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, can also affect the elbow.  Pain and stiffness and swelling are the common symptoms.  These conditions are uncommon and an x-ray and/or blood tests will usually provide the diagnosis.

Treatment in early arthritis can include arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, but advanced cases may require joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty).
