Elbow Replacement

Elbow Replacement Surgery at Grand View Hospital

The elbow is a hinge joint made up of three bones:

  • The upper arm bone, the humerus, is located at the upper part of the hinge.
  • The two forearm bones, the radius and ulna, are at the lower part of the hinge.

Elbow replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged ends of the upper and lower arm bones with an artificial joint, usually made of metal and medical-grade plastic.

Following surgery, you enjoy a spacious, private room and other conveniences. You also continue your care plan.

The typical hospital stay for elbow replacement at the Joint Replacement Center is one to two days. If returning directly home from the hospital is not an option for you, our Joint Replacement Center Coordinator helps you make the necessary arrangements for a stay at a nursing or rehabilitation facility.
