Chipped Bone in Elbow Surgery?

Answer

A chipped bone in the elbow can sometimes occur because of a condition called osteochondritis dissecans. When a piece of bone breaks off you will need surgery to have it removed. You will know this has occurred because you will experience pain whenever you move your elbow and you could hear a clicking sound in your joint. Before a doctor can perform surgery they will want to make sure all of the inflammation is gone.
