Elbow Exploration and Treatment FAQ

What causes elbow joint pain without an injury?

The most common cause of elbow joint pain other than an injury is overuse. People most commonly get elbow pain from overuse from playing sports, hobbies, and work that requires repetitive hand, arm, or wrist movements. In rarer cases, elbow pain may be caused by arthritis.

When should you see a doctor for elbow joint pain?

If your pain doesn’t go away after rest and ice, or if your elbow pain is present even when not using your arm, you should talk to a medical professional like the experienced doctors at Preston Surgery Center. Other warning signs include swelling, bruising, intense pain, and redness that gets worse over time.

Is a surgery center cheaper than a hospital?

For many procedures, surgery centers offer lower costs than a hospital, often being 40 – 60% less expensive than hospitals for the same or similar procedures. This lower cost is due to lower overhead, fixed costs, and patients don’t stay overnight.

Is a surgery center safe?

The doctors at surgery centers are highly trained surgeons and physicians, often with the same credentials as the doctors working at major hospitals. Surgery centers follow the same strict patient safety guidelines, with several studies finding that many surgery centers have just as high a safety record as hospitals.
