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.
Dr. Millett offers several surgical procedures to repair sports-related injuries to the elbow. He also has experience in treating overuse, traumatic and degenerative conditions such as arthritis. Once it has been determined that elbow surgery is the best course of action, he will thoroughly discuss your treatment options and the surgical procedure best suited for your specific condition. Dr. Millett operates both arthroscopically (minimally-invasive keyhole surgery) and also uses open surgical procedures depending on the nature of the injury, the goals of the patient, and the damage that has occurred.
