The specialty-trained elbow doctors at Desert Orthopaedic Center, located in Las Vegas and Henderson, are regional experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating elbow injuries and conditions.

The reasons people experience elbow pain vary widely, and if you consider the many ways the joint can twist and move, it's easy to understand how it could be prone to injury. For instance, someone might bump an elbow into a wall or door or cause damage to it by performing a repetitive sports movement. In addition to these types of injuries, people who are older often develop elbow pain due to arthritis or wear-and-tear issues, or the elbow can become damaged through injury or disease.
