Our Specialties

Elbow

When it comes to everyday living, there’s no room for elbow pain. Whether it’s caused by a sports-related condition – such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow – a fracture, simple sprain or tendon inflammation (known as tendonitis), the elbow subspecialists at Orlin & Cohen can help relieve your pain so you can get on with your life.

Our multidisciplinary team featuring our subspecialists in sports medicine, shoulder and hand/upper extremities, brings a breadth and depth of expertise other orthopedic practices simply can’t match. Given the elbow is a complex joint, our subspecialists have specialty training on specific areas within the elbow to provide the best possible care.

  • Dr. Levitz, Dr. Keefer, Dr. Milchteim and Dr. Woods specialize in sports-related injuries from throwing elbow, tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) to golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) as well as treatments such as elbow arthroscopy and Tommy John surgery (UCL reconstruction).
  • Dr. Kearns, Dr. Brown, Dr. Mitgang and Dr. Rho specialize in:
    • Trauma related bone and joint injuries including fractures, dislocations and sprains.
    • Arthritis, epicondylitis, tendonitis, tendon lacerations or ruptures, or ligament tears.
    • Nerve conditions such as ulnar nerve entrapment or cubital tunnel syndrome.

Featuring onsite diagnostic services – and board-certified pain management and physiatry subspecialists – at Orlin & Cohen, we work together, collaborating as necessary to uncover the root cause of your elbow pain and the best way to treat it. Many conditions will respond to rest, cold or heat, physical therapy or pain management techniques. If surgery is necessary, at Orlin & Cohen, we typically use minimally invasive outpatient arthroscopic techniques that require smaller incisions so your recovery is faster.
