As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Portland, Vancouver, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 40 years, our fellowship-trained and board-certified elbow doctors at Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery are dedicated to delivering exceptional elbow care.
Pain in the elbow is often the results of repetitive stress or overuse as it is one of the most exercised joints in the body. Overuse injuries can include tennis elbow, bursitis, and golfer's elbow. However, all severe elbow pain should be treated by an orthopedic surgeon who has specialized training in the upper extremity. Elbow doctors have the advanced knowledge and training needed to diagnose and treat a variety of injuries and conditions affecting the elbow, which can range from arthritis to ligament or tendon damage.
When Is It Time to Consult an Elbow Doctor?
Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your doctor. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your elbow injury is or the type of elbow condition you may have.

- Pain when moving or bending the elbow
- Painful bump on a bone in the elbow

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following injuries or conditions, which can be treated by our elbow specialists:
