Our Specialties



World-Renowned Elbow Leaders

Elbow doctors and surgeons are specialty-trained medical providers who diagnose and treat patients with common and rare elbow injuries and conditions, such as arthritis, elbow bursitis, elbow fractures, golfer’s elbow, and tennis elbow. These doctors are highly skilled at performing minimally invasive procedures and complex elbow surgeries to treat severe elbow injuries and conditions or disorders where nonoperative treatments have proven to be unsuccessful. 

At Carrell Clinic, all of our world-renowned leaders are board-certified and fellowship-trained experts within their field of subspecialty as well as fully trained general orthopaedic specialists. This includes our elbow doctors, Dr. Wayne Burkhead, Jr., Dr. Daniel Worrel, Dr. Todd Moen, Dr. Michael Khair, Dr. Jason Klein, and Dr. Holt Cutler. Our elbow specialists’ advanced training and certifications attest to their skill and the profound dedication they have toward the treatment and surgical care of their elbow patients.

Do You Need Specialized Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Care for the Elbow?

An elbow injury or condition can disrupt your life as well as keep you from enjoying some of the activities you love. Below are some common signs and symptoms you may be experiencing if you have an elbow-related injury or condition:

  • Bending or straightening your arm causes elbow pain
  • Forearm muscles are sore or tender
  • Joint instability
  • Pain that radiates up to your shoulder 
  • Pins-and-needles sensations
  • Shoulder pain in addition to elbow pain

If you’ve been experiencing elbow pain or any of the above symptoms, you may be suffering from a sports-related or orthopaedic injury or condition of the elbow. One of our specialty-trained elbow doctors can expertly diagnose you as well as work with you to find the treatment solution right for you. Common elbow injuries and conditions they see include: 

  • Arthritis
  • Biceps tendon ruptures
  • Bursitis
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)

Experience a Legacy of Excellence and Exceptional Elbow Care.

Serving the elbow needs of Dallas, Frisco, and the surrounding areas, our elbow doctors are world-renowned leaders who are dedicated to providing patients with the specialized elbow care they need to get back to an active, healthy life.

Having dedicated their practices to offering patient-centered care, our elbow doctors understand that while an elbow surgery, such as cubital tunnel release, may be the best treatment for one patient, another patient may benefit more from a nonsurgical solution, such an injection or physical therapy from a trained physical therapist. That’s why our specialists are committed to listening to each patient to fully understand their needs and goals before developing a personalized treatment plan.

If surgery is recommended for you and your injury or condition, rest assured that our elbow surgeons continue to uphold excellence by keeping up to date with the latest advancements in technology, surgeries, and techniques. Our surgeons are also committed and well-respected in their field and know how to perform a full range of elbow surgeries and minimally invasive procedures. This includes the following surgeries:

  • Biceps tendon repair
  • Elbow arthroscopy
  • Elbow debridement
  • Radial nerve decompression and release
  • Surgical fracture care
  • Total elbow replacement
  • Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction
