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.

If you are seeking relief from chronic spinal pain and want to return to your normally healthy lifestyle, you may be a candidate for Coolief.
How Does Coolief Work?
Coolief is also called cooled radiofrequency. This means the non-surgical procedure uses cooled radiofrequency energy on the nerves in your body that are in pain. Specifically, it will heat the spinal tissue by circulating water throughout the special device. By heating the tissue, it creates a large treatment area without overheating the tissue in order to maximize pain relief. Unlike most cooled radiofrequency treatments, Coolief technology treats a larger area and shows better results. Studies show that Coolief helps improve recovery time, mobility and is an effective outpatient procedure for pain relief.
