Elbow

Mr. Blewitt has a particular interest in the diagnosis and management of elbow conditions.
Elbow conditions are not particularly common.  Few surgeons have developed much experience in the assessment and management of elbow conditions. 

Correct diagnosis is essential for the correct management of any condition and this is particularly true in the management of conditions affecting the elbow.
Tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, and other tendon strains around the elbow, bursitis, arthritis and loose bodies can often be confusing and difficult to correctly diagnose.

Mr. Blewitt has many years of experience and devoted much time to research in the elbow. He has developed a particular expertise in the management of the whole range of elbow conditions, ranging from simple bursitis and tendonitis through tendon rupture to loose bodies in the joint and injuries around the elbow. Mr Blewitt has an extensive experience in the management of the more complex and disabling condition of elbow arthritis. 

Mr Blewitt has developed a particular expertise in the surgical management of elbow conditions including arthroscopic surgery and limited open operations. He has a very long term interest in elbow joint replacement, perhaps one of the most difficult joints in the body to replace with success.

The aim of all treatment be it advice, injections or surgical treatment is to relieve pain improve function and allow a return to activities.
