Your consultant has suggested you have treatment for the release of a stiff elbow. This treatment is typically performed if you are not able to straighten your arm more than halfway, or if you are experiencing pain when making a fist or opening your fingers. Elbow stiffness often occurs as a result of trauma or injury to the elbow and occasionally elbow arthritis. Common causes of pain in the elbow include sprains from overstretching a ligament, tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, a build-up of fluid over the elbow joint (bursitis), trapped nerves, osteoarthritis or repetitive strain injury.
Before going ahead with this treatment, you will need to have an initial consultation with a specialist Consultant to go through your medical history and diagnosis. At this appointment, your consultant will confirm the exact treatment you require.
If you would like to have an initial consultation, you can call us and we can help you find the consultant best for you.
Alternatively, if you have already been diagnosed as needing a particular operation or treatment, our Reservations team can give you a guide price for this to be carried out at KIMS Hospital and book an appointment for you to meet a consultant.
Call our Reservations team on 01622 237727 or firstname.lastname@example.org..
You can be treated at KIMS by using your private medical insurance or by paying for yourself.
If you have private medical insurance, you will need to contact your insurer to ensure you are covered for the initial consultation prior to making an appointment and obtain an authorisation number. The insurance company will then need to be advised if you require further treatment. The insurance company usually settles bills on your behalf.
If you are paying for your own treatment, you will need to pay for an initial consultation. This will be confirmed at the time of booking but is typically £150-£250. You will also need to pay for any associated diagnostic tests your consultant recommends (for example x-rays and blood tests).
Following this consultation, if you don’t need any further treatment or if you decide paying for yourself isn’t the right option, there is no commitment to proceed further.
If you require the operation or procedure to be carried out, you will receive a quote for your treatment. In most case this will be the fixed price package quoted on this website. If this quote is different for any reason, we will provide an explanation. This quote is also subject to pre-assessment checks prior to your admission to hospital.
Payment is required 7 days prior to admission.
If the problem is caused by an inflammation, your consultant may suggest you have anti-inflammatory medication or an anti-inflammatory injection. They may also refer you to have physical therapy treatment to help restore movement.
In severe cases, your consultant could recommend you undergo surgery. The release of stiff elbow surgery is often an arthroscopic (keyhole) procedure to remove spurs on the ends of bones, remove any loose bodies within the elbow or to treat other problems within the joint.
