I am in my 50’s and have dislocated my elbow on multiple occasions.  I have tried everything from physical therapy to bracing to avoiding the activities that I love.  Is there a better solution out there for me?

Depending on the direction and type of elbow dislocation that is occurring, there is a good chance that you would benefit from a radial head arthroplasty, or replacement.  There are several types of implants available and decent research to show good to excellent outcomes in most cases. However, this is typically a specialty area so you will need to discuss this with your physician for his further referral.
