The elbow is a complex joint. Injury, overuse, and age-related wear and tear are responsible for most elbow problems. Elbow arthroscopy may relieve painful symptoms of many problems that damage the cartilage surfaces and other soft tissues surrounding the joint. Elbow arthroscopy may also be recommended to remove loose pieces of bone and cartilage or release scar tissue that is blocking motion. If you have a painful condition that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment, an elbow arthroscopy may be recommended.
