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.
Sports related injuries are among the most common injuries in the United States. From youth and teens injured in a school related sporting event, professional athletes suffering from injury which affects their careers, to those who simply love recreational sporting activities and who push their bodies to limit just because they can - sports related injuries can have a major impact on a person's professional and personal life. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta is an orthopedic and sports medicine practice that features a team of interventional sport physicians and orthopedic specialists. We specialize in helping athletes recover from injury and return to peak performance levels.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we understand that the body generally responds best to minimally invasive treatment methods. Surgery requires a significant amount of downtime, healing, and recovery - all of which do not sit well with active athletes who want to return to their sporting activity. We treat every patient that we see on an individualized basis. If you are a professional athlete, we will offer to you the privacy that you desire alongside the expert care that you need. If you are a recreational sports enthusiast looking to recover and return to activity, we also offer a low patient to provider ratio in order to provide the appropriate treatment plan to accurately pinpoint the source of the problem.
We understand that surgery is often required for some serious athletic injuries. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is one of the Southeast's leading providers of endoscopic spine surgery. This advanced surgical technique offers effective surgical solutions with few complications and downtime.
If you have suffered a sports related injury, contact Ortho Sport & Spine today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping you recover and return to the game.
