Brief Answer:
X-ray needed for confirmation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
If the elbow is actually dislocated and the dislocation happened not more than 3 weeks ago then closed reduction is a possibility. If the dislocation happened more than 3 weeks ago then surgery may be needed to fix the deformity.
It is best to get an X-ray done and consult an orthopedician.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
