At the Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey (OINJ), we understand how important it is to have healthy elbows. When injury or a chronic condition, such as arthritis, prevents the full use of your elbows or arms, the simplest tasks, such as reaching for a pan, lifting groceries, swinging a tennis racquet or golf club, typing on a computer, taking a shower or cooking can become impossible.
From repairing traumatic injuries to treating chronic conditions and repetitive motion injuries, such as tennis elbow, our orthopedic elbow specialists have the training, experience, and expertise necessary to restore your elbow and arm function. Our goal is to help you return to your daily activities healthy and pain-free.
At OINJ, we can create a customized treatment plan to fit your needs. Our team of board-certified elbow surgeons specializing in joints are experienced in diagnosing and providing the best treatment and preventative care for a wide range of acute and chronic elbow and arm conditions.
Using the most advanced techniques and technologies, OINJ offers quality care for injury or illness of the elbow to bring you relief and get you moving again.

"Dr. Corrigan did a tremendous job with my elbow surgery. The pain that I was dealing with for 9+ months is completely gone. He didn’t rush into surgery but tried all the non-invasive approaches first. The surgical center did a great job before and the day of the surgery. All of my contacts with the staff at The Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey are terrific. I have recommended them to many people. Even my golfer friends who have any pain as a way to improve their game!”
