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.
Hip Injury Treatment
Your hip joints are one of the most load-bearing joints in your body. They are actively engaged in nearly all of the body’s movements, and they must support the majority of your body’s weight. The sacroiliac joints located in the hip are especially at risk for dysfunction and injury. Progressive wear and damage within these joints can cause hip pain for many adults, including those that are pregnant, overweight, athletic or elderly.

- Hip Arthroscopy
- Cartilage Repair
- FAI corrective surgery
