Anon - If I understand your information correctly, you broke your elbow 25 years ago, don't like the way it looks now, and want to know if something can be done. You also sometimes feel pain in your little finger. You want to know if there is a way that you can diagnose your own situation and treat it yourself. Is that correct?

You will need to see an orthopedic specialist to get an accurate assessment and diagnosis of both situations. Most likely the doctor will want to do some tests, such as an x-ray of your arm, including the elbow area. There are additional tests that are used for patients that have pain in the joints in their fingers. The type of tests depend on the type of pain being experienced and other symptoms.

Whether or not the doctor will be able to do something is unclear. If You are seeking to have your bones broken and reset for cosmetic reasons, it's not likely that insurance would cover the procedure. If your bones were not set properly when you were first injured, and you now have medical problems as a result, there may be more leeway for insurance coverage. In any case, you need to see a professional for diagnosis and treatment.
Good luck to you!
