The elbow is a complex joint formed by the upper arm (the humerus), the forearm (the radius and ulna) and an intricate system of ligaments and muscles, which connect the bones. The elbow is the joint that connects the shoulder to the hand. Elbow injuries are common and can be extremely painful for both adults and children. Dr. Millett specializes in degenerative conditions of the elbow such as arthritis of the elbow, as well as common elbow injuries associated with sports such as Golfer’s Elbow and Skier’s Thumb. He offers several arthroscopic elbow surgery options for elbow conditions such as tennis elbow, elbow arthritis, tricep and bicep tendon injuries, and ligament tears in throwers.
