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.
When spinal issues are not responsive to conservative treatment options, it may be necessary to perform spine surgery to achieve optimum results.

Our team at Ortho Sport & Spine offers the most advanced options available for spinal treatments. We have double board certified spinal surgeons on our team; fellowship trained specialists that use the latest techniques for superior surgical results. We offer endoscopic surgical options when appropriate, but also perform extensive spine surgery for complicated conditions. Some of the spine surgeries we can perform at our state-of-the-art facilities include:

Many of these surgeries require multiple incisions and adjustments made to the spine that need the expertise of a spinal specialist.

If surgery is required, we strive to limit the downtime needed post-surgery by using the latest technology for improved recovery times.
