Orthopedic Elbow Surgery in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenAnatomy of the Elbow

The elbow joint moves in one direction allowing for flexion and extension, or bending and straightening. The elbow joint consists of three bones, the humerus of the upper arm, and the two bones of the forearm, the radius (on the outside of the forearm) and the ulna (on the middle side). The joint is actually formed by the trochlea of the humerus articulating with the ulna and the capitulum of the humerus articulating with the head of the radius.
