Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers baseball players and other dedicated athletes with Tommy John Surgery as an option to repair torn ligaments in the elbow. This injury, a torn or damaged ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), commonly affects pitchers in baseball. This procedure was named after Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Tommy John. Over half of Tommy John’s career wins came after his surgery.
People who make the decision to undergo a surgical procedure do so with the expectation that the procedure will be worth it - that is, it will successfully correct the issues that made surgery an attractive alternative. However, there are some patients who do not have the outcomes they hoped for; in fact, they may develop new pain after surgery. Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) is a condition in which patients have new or persistent pain after spinal surgery for back or leg pain. The term "Failed" Back Surgery Syndrome refers to the continuing pain and is not meant to imply that something went wrong during surgery. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians we are a specialized team of experienced team of Interventional Spine physicians, Interventional Sport physicians, and Orthopedic Specialists that offer expert treatment for FBSS.
It may seem odd that a minimally invasive treatment could improve the pain associated with spine and neck conditions when back surgery was unsuccessful. However, according to the International Neuromodulation Society, large, carefully conducted clinical trials have shown that certain minimally invasive spinal techniques, such as spinal cord stimulation, are highly successful at eliminating pain. The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are dedicated to help patients find the relief that they need to thrive in life. While FBSS can be difficult to treat, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are committed to using the most advanced and minimally invasive methods to help patients with FBSS find long-term relief.
