Elbow Reconstruction Surgery

Rebuilding the Ulnar Collateral Ligament

The elbow, like the knee, is held together by a crucial network of ligaments. One of these ligaments, the ulnar collateral ligament, prevents the elbow from dislocating or falling out of the joint. When this ligament is damaged or loose, the elbow loses stability—causing pain and reducing functional power.

Elbow reconstruction involves grafting a tendon from elsewhere in the body or from a donor, and anchoring it to both the ulna and the humerus. It is also stitched to the current ligament, so the patient keeps as much of their natural tissue as possible. Elbow reconstruction keeps the elbow tightly stable, allowing athletes to return to their sport with confidence.
